We will be participating in the Local History Roadshow organised by Smethwick Heritage Centre on May 11th at St. Hilda’s 269 Abbey Rd, Smethwick B67 5NQ, UK. 10am – 12.30, 1pm – 3.30 pm.
There will be a range of artefacts and historic materials that have been donated or rescued by the Smethwick Heritage Centre Trust. These events always attract hundreds of visitors both local and those from further afield, all with a story to share about their childhood or a family members experience in Smethwick. A selection of unique photographic material will also be shown from the Chance Brothers Archive at Sandwell Community History & Archives Service. As part of the ‘Keepers of the Light’ project we will be producing a new heritage leaflet related to the site of the glassworks, so come on down with your suggestions and help us make a selection.
Thanks to Maureen Waldron and Ian Gray at Sandwell Archives for helping make a selection of materials to share.
