As well as replenishing our funds, it should be a pleasant social occasion, especially if it doesn't rain! (We will just have to squash indoors if it does.)

Chiseldon Remembers WWI
Chiseldon Camp opened in August 1914 and many thousands of men and women were trained, hospitalised or demobilised there.  As well as the home nations, ANZACs, South Africans and Canadians were all at the camp.


CLHG would like to collect any stories or pictures relating to the camp or the men listed on the village's War Memorials, either for display in our museum or to be retained in our archives.  All original material will be returned to you after digitising.

Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, July 15th, at 7.30 pm in The Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon.

“The History of the Church at Ogbourne St Andrew” - a talk by Bruce Fox.

Our neighbours from Ogbourne St Andrew History Group have been investigating the history of their beautiful church, including an exciting excavation of the paddock next to it this May.

Bruce Fox, chair of the group, is coming to talk to us about the church's history, and will no doubt be able to tell us the findings from the dig. There are pictures of the dig on their website – www.osahg.org.uk.

Meetings are free to members, but there is a small charge for visitors.  Why not join us?  Membership is still only £10 a year.
