Bev I shall be there Thursday with my hubby and when the person at Belgrave hall was taking names and telephone numbers I did a booking for 3 in the end, one for you, as the numbers were at about 20 and I hadn't spotted you, Mike said he would not be able to make it. Bet you heard but in case not it only takes 35 in the room they use and it's £1.50. I wasn't the only one from Nottingham and then there were complaints about people being on shift work not being able to come back.......It was a much nicer atmosphere in the pub, it was great to meet so will try again Thursday.

Hi Mike Your a star, going to get to work on looking at this lot you found, thank you very much. The talk was brill. All done in a slide presentation which showed Leicester at various times and compared some scenes to the present. Learnt quite a bit and met Bev in the process, a good week all in all Elaine

Hi Mike, Could you have a look for Samuel Berry in Lubenham in 1841 please - should be about 70; also any parish/general info on Berrys or Palmers (Samuel's wife Jane's maiden name) in Lubenham would be great. Thanks, Michael
