24th SEPTEMBER 2017

It has been a hectic couple of months. Reinstalling at the Bethel, preparing the Annual Event, John Devey’s Talk on “the walk into Cannock” and the unveiling of the latest Heritage Trail Board at Wynn’s corner.

The Bethel, although not yet finished, is looking great, well worth a visit.
Preparation of the displays and films for the Annual Eventis taking up members time but we should be ready for the big day!
John’s talk was a sweetener for the launch of the new book ” A Walk into Cannock” and  went down well with a good audience.
The unveiling of the Heritage Trail Board on Wynn’s Corner ( for the uninitiated, corner of Watling Street & North Street) was also well attended  having met at the Bethel prior to the unveiling. Speakers from the Cannock District Council, Bridgtown Parish Council, the vicar of the Bethel, as well as David Williams, Derrick Middleton, former Chairman of the Society Tony Pearson, Peggy Greenway. After the unveiling, it was back to the Bethel for refreshments.
