On 16th May the Wheatley Local History Group enjoyed a talk from Jean Townsend at the Village Hall in South Wheatley. Jean’s talk ‘The Last Laugh’ looked at amusing epitaphs on gravestones.
Looking ahead, the group is planning an Evening with Caroline Hawley on Friday 23rd September at the Village Hall, starting at 7:30pm. Caroline is an antiques expert, auctioneer and television personality, having appeared on such programmes as Bargain Hunt, Flog It!, and Antiques Road Trip.
Her talk is entitled ‘The Auction Market Today and Tales from Television’. Following the talk, Caroline will give valuations to items that people have brought along.
More information will appear here next month.
