Fenland village history project launches with open day
DO you have any old photographs, artefacts or even memories that could help with a new project on the history of the Norfolk village of Three Holes?
The project is being officially launched on Saturday at an event in the village hall being held between 11am and 5pm.
Organisers Three Holes Village Hall and Playing Field Committee aim to build on village records compiled over the years at its own events and those outlined in a previous book about the village.
Committee chairman Brian Ranger said: “There is a huge interest in local history from people moving into the area as well as those born here. If you have any old drawings in your property deeds, know interesting stories about the history of businesses, buildings, clubs or local traditions and everyday life then we would love to hear from you.”
As part of the project, the committee is linking up with the history website www.fenvillages.com run by Dr Anne Jackson, who now lives in Australia but who grew up in Three Holes.
