Activities & Programme


Exhibitions and Workshops

Exhibitions and workshops are organised by the Archive Committee and held in Aston Cantlow Village Hall.  Quantities of new material are usually exhibited and the workshop gives an opportunity for members to help in cataloguing and archiving information that is received on a regular basis. In particular the monthly Vine  publication has now been largely catalogued and referenced back to its earliest origins, giving a valuable insight into life in the villages and hamlets of the parish over several decades.
