Somercotes Local History Society will hold its second annual heritage day on Saturday November 9, at Somercotes Village Hall, Nottingham Road, from 10am to 4pm.
Organiser Gordon Blackmore said: “Last year was immensely successful with over 300 visitors. There will be 11 exhibitors from local history groups and societies and we expect a busy day.”
The society was formed in July 2012 after members became aware that the local community were extremely interested in recording their heritage for future generations. A very successful heritage day, in October 2012, encouraged the history society to apply for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
