10/10/17 Change of Date and Venue for October meeting, now 26th October, at 12, Daddlebrook Road
27/7/17 Alveley Weighbridge and Coal Mining Heritage Project - Due to the heavy workload, extensive time consuming nature and urgency of this project, Alveley Historical Society (AHS) decided that it was not a direction that they wanted to pursue and that a separate group should be set up. The new group is called Alveley Mining Heritage group, having separate funding from AHS, part from a project grant from Alveley & Romsley Parish Council, part events revenue, donations and book sales. Alveley Mining Heritage was officially launched on 27th July 2017. For more information please visit the website www.alveleyminingheritage.org
