At the annual party for SLHA volunteers on Sunday 1 December Miss Thora Wagstaffe was presented with a gift by the Society Chairman to mark her many years of work as an SLHA volunteer, especially in the bookshop.
Before the Society moved to Jews' Court she organised the Society's bookstalls at outside events. Since the opening of the shop in 1990 she has served behind the counter every week, where her expert knowledge of the County's history and local books has been invaluable.
As one who set the highest standards as a volunteer, Thora trained most newcomers who came to work in the bookshop. Her contribution there will be much missed, but we are delighted that she has taken on the role of Society Archivist.
