Centenary Celebrations 2020

Over the last few months, your Centenary Team has been working hard on our plans to mark this important event in our Society’s life.

The main event will be a special Celebration Tea, to be held in the Milton Hall at 3 p.m. on Saturday 3rd October 2020, to which the Mayor and the Borough’s two MPs have been invited.

Other events will include:

  • A ‘Heritage Treasure Hunt’, in which participants will be asked to identify examples of the Borough’s heritage from photographs in a competition leaflet. It will take place from mid-July to mid-August. Prizes will be awarded for the best sets of answers.
  • Family activities during the summer holidays, probably in the grounds of Honeywood Museum.
  • Opportunities for people to bring their reminiscences or old photos of the area to share.

Apart from the Celebration Tea, we intend these activities to be open to any members of the public, as well as to members of the Society, so please tell your friends and families, and plan to invite them to suitable events. More details will be available in the Spring Newsletter, as we firm up the arrangements.
