The Three Holes Village Hall and Playing Field Committee is aiming to build on village records compiled over the years at its own previous events and in the book ‘Three Holes, Portrait of a Village’ and the village diary compiled by members of the Acorn Club (previously Three Holes W.I).
“There is a huge interest in local history from people moving into the area as well as those born here,” says Brian Ranger, Committee Chairman. “If you have 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 us at www. fenvillages.com.
If you can help please get in touch with the committee or come along to a special event to launch the project at the village hall on Saturday, 23 October between 11am and 5pm. Material from old logs and records from Upwell Primary School, the Acorn Club 70’s diary and from other clubs will be on display as well as items already donated by local residents. A scanning service will be running at the event to ensure documents brought on the day can be copied and audio recording will also be available to capture any memories that people would like to share. The event will be rounding off in the evening with a presentation at 7pm on the Outwell –Wisbech Canal by local historian Bill Smith. Entry to the daytime event is free of charge and tickets for the evening will have a small charge.
