Local and Family History Day, Berwick, England

There will be a Local and Family History Day on Saturday, 20th March from 10am to 4pm at the Guildhall, Berwick (upon Tweed), England, with exhibitions on local and family history in North Northumberland and the Borders.
It's free to get in, so you can afford to take the whole family.

The Programme comprises:
  • 11am Cross Border Family History records - Fred Kennington
  • 12 noon Maritime Berwick - Jim Walker
  • 1pm Bell Tower - Jim Herbert
  • 2pm Aspect of Berwick's History - Francis Cowe
  • 3pm Berwick's Forgotten Motor Industry - Fred Kennington
The aspect of Berwick's history to be covered at 2pm will only be revealed then, so come along and find out what it will be !

Last year's event was really interesting, and I'm sorry to miss this year's event.
Fred Kennington is our membership secretary, and a really good speaker with oodles of experience, so come along and listen to him.

We'll have a stand there, so do come and see us too.

Also, while you're in Berwick, take a wander around this historic city, so often in the midst of conflict between England and Scotland.
