New acquisitions for archive.

Cathy Parrot of Dunston, Stafford, who lived at Lupin Farm, Kings Bromley, from 1954 to 1959, has donated to Kings Bromley Historians archive a tranche of 66 documents relating to the farm stretching back to the mid eighteenth century. The task of cataloguing and transcribing these has begun. We would like to thank Cathy for this generous act.

 For the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Kings Bromley, our Archivist Lynne O'Dea, helped by members Ann Hoar, Helen Price and Alison Howard, put together a display of photos of Kings Bromley over the past 70 years. The display showed building developments and changes in houses, together with photos of roads, floods, Richard Crosse Primary School, celebrations and people, showing many aspects of life in the village. This was appreciated by all who visited the display in the Village Hall.

 On 20 August 2022, Kings Bromley Historians joined with Kings Bromley Gardening Guild to visit the gardens of Calke Abbey.
