Celebrating 40 years


The Lickey Hills Local History Society is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.

To mark the start of our new season we are holding our first Open History Day on Sunday September 9, from 11am to 4pm at the Old School Room, the Visitor Centre, Warren Lane, Lickey.

There will be displays and guided walks, maps and photos. But most important, we would love to hear from you – your stories, memories and mementos of the much loved Lickey Hills area, from Rubery to Barnt Green, Cofton Hackett to Marlbrook.

Our new annual season of eight lectures, on a varied range of local history topics, starts in September, but please note our new meeting day – the third Tuesday in the month starting with a talk by Lyn Blewitt on “The Dodderhill Project”.

We meet at the Trinity Centre, Lickey at 7.45pm. New members are always welcomed. Annual subscription is £10, but non-members are welcome at £2.50 per meeting.
