St James's Minster Grimsby was the venue for a vibrant Heritage Fair arranged by SLHA on Saturday 9 April. Thirty societies and groups had stalls with attractive displays about Lincolnshire's heritage - including archaeology, local history (Grimsby and several villages), family history, churches, RAF stations, windmills and watermills, pumping stations, archive film, Wesley, Tennyson and Joseph Banks. The local Civil War re-enactment group, Sealed Knot, camped on the green outside and demonstrated warfare techniques.
The event, formally opened by the Mayor of North East Lincolnshire (Cllr Mrs Norma Lincoln), was regarded as successful and enjoyable.
Thanks are due to Jo Middleton, Community Projects Officer, St James's Minster, and to David Robinson (NELALHS) for local liaison. The event was organised by Rodney Callow, SLHA Administrator.
