Current news from Hagley Historical & Field Society
Our next meeting at St Saviour’s Church Hall is Tuesday 4 February we once again welcome Terry Daniels presenting ‘Made in Oldbury: Industrial History Based on Ten Objects – Part One’.
We enjoyed Part One last year, and it is interesting to speculate on which objects he will choose this time with such a wide variety of trades and manufacturers to choose from. Terry has spent all his working life in the plastics industry in Oldbury. He is chair of Langley Local History Society and Oldbury Local History Group. Writing and lecturing on the history of the area, he has also produced a number of books.
On Tuesday 3 March we welcome Rachel Brown from Dudley Archives and Local History Centre. Dudley Archives holds a wide variety of records relating to various people, families, institutions and businesses within the Dudley Metropolitan Borough, with their earliest document dating back to 1182. Rachel will be discussing the evolution of the local archive service, sharing how they preserve and provide access to the records they hold and discussing what different types of records can reveal about the past.
