TillVAS is looking for volunteers to help with research. Please see archaeology page for details.

A volunteer at the Shakespeare Hospice Book Shop, Stratford-upon-Avon has told us of a copy of  Volume 14 of “The History of Northumberland” edition edited by Madeleine Hope Dodds and published by Andrew Reid & Co in 1935.  This volume covers the parishes of:  Alnham, Chatton, Chillingham, Eglingham, Ilderton, Ingram and Whittingham.  It has some sun fading of the spine but is otherwise a clean and bright copy.

 The price is £200.00 but they are open to offers.  The purchaser would be helping to support an important Stratford-upon-Avon charity.

The next BAS  lecture on Monday 3rd December will be delivered by Clive Waddington at the Berwick Parish Centre.  "Plunging climate and tsunami impacts on the Mesolithic population of northern Britain"

Bowsden History Group Monday 3rd December at 7.30, Winter Social. You are invited to share your memories, photos and momentoes from 1968 - a year which pundits claim to ave changed history.
