Hooe History is keen to record as much ‘living history’ as possible so please keep the date free and come along to the meeting. Your contributions, memories and any photographs you can produce will be most eagerly accepted. A note for your diaries - the next 2 meetings are on February 21 when Jim Bolter will be returning, this time talking about Medieval Churches and March 21 when they hear about wheelwrighting from Dick Carey. From April onwards they will be changing the date to the second Thursday in the month. At present the meetings clash with those of Ninfield History Group and as so many folk would like to attend both they thought a change of day appropriate.
