Please share your memories with us, says Redditch Local History Society

MORE memories please! That’s the message from Redditch Local History Society as members get ready to bring another successful exhibition to a close.

People flocked in the droves to Forge Mill Needle Museum for the event and to look at old photographs of Redditch, reminisce and have their memories jogged.

Delighted society archivist Derek Coombes said: “There has been a steady stream of visitors, many of whom have spent several hours looking at all the exhibits.

“And what has been even more pleasing is seeing groups of visitors, some strangers, other long-lost school pals, standing around chatting and sharing memories.”

“This is why we are issuing a plea – don’t stop recording your memories of growing up and living in Redditch.

“Every memory is like adding a piece into what is a giant jigsaw puzzle called Redditch Heritage.”

And with the ‘new town’ no longer new but very much part of Redditch as a whole those ‘new town’ memories are also welcome.

“Please write the down your memories and donate them to the society’s archive. You’ll be adding your piece of the Redditch History jigsaw,” said Derek.

For those who have not yet visited the exhibition, it runs until this Sunday, November 24.
