Evening Talk - Nov 10th 7.30pm Wayland House, Watton 'Getting Started on Your Village History' the next stage of the project

 Following on from the project Focus Group meeting on 2nd Nov, we have taken the direction followed by the meeting to set out a framework for the next stage of the project. We are now looking for written submissions from project  members for inclusion is a series of publications supported with multimedia DVD or CDs.
The following is the starting point based on the list of suggestions put forward by those attending the Focus Group meeting. We have broken down the suggested topics into manageable chunks:

  1. Produce a written portrait of your village as it is today, e.g. types of houses, population, trades, employment, school, village hall etc
  2. Geology and Prehistory in brief of your parish.
  3. Early settlement pre Domesday
  4. Origin of the village name.
  5. What does the Domesday survey tell you about your village  
Bron’s Tyler's evening talk 'Getting Started on Your Village History' on Nov 10th 7.30pm Wayland House, Watton will provide guidance for those terrified at the prospect. We are here to give help and back up with sources of info etc, just ring or email. 

The above sections will need to be written by the end of Jan. There will be two writing workshops to help you on your way and give guidance on the evening of the 11th Jan 7-9pm and afternoon of the 12th Jan 2-4pm both at Wayland House, Watton, please email me to book a workshop place.

Hope to see you on the 10th Nov as we feel this is an important chance to discuss any issues you may have. We are hoping that members of the Focus Group will have their first drafts of the 'Village Portraits' ready for the next meeting on 30th Nov.
