Rushden & District History Society

To publicise our society and some of its activities we have arranged 'Discovery Days' and
attended various functions both in Rushden and around the county.
Here are a few pictures from some of these events.

Our President, Eric Jenkins takes at turn at the washing up!

Eric Parker, our member from New Zealand made a visit to our June 2006 meeting during a holiday back to England.


When the Research Group started their project to transcribe wills, Eric offered his help and worked from a photograph of the will sent to him by email.


These photographs were taken at Cogenhoe village.

The theme was 1940s.

Our Society took several display boards.

Below (left) you can see that some members went in period dress. Pat Jenkins, Marguerite Stevenson and Margaret Shelton with hair in curlers and 1940s pinafores!
