Webteam: January 2016
On Saturday 9th January 2016 the Audley and District Family History Society came to Halmer End Methodist Church to launch their latest publication 'Halmer End: A Brief Account of Village Life in the 1920s and 1930s by Nofara'. The book tells the story, from the viewpoint of a child, of life in Halmer End Village. Robert (holding a copy of the book in our picture) and Stuart from the Society gave a slide presentation to introduce the book in which they compared Nofara's account with that of an earlier account by Gertrude Evans. The book is a very readable account of life in a mining village.
Copies of the book will be available from the Society but they did have a near 'sell out' over the weekend.
