History group’s birthday exhibit

Have your say

A GROUP dedicated to documenting the history of a Sheffield suburb is celebrating a landmark birthday.

Stannington Local History Group is holding an exhibition to mark its 50th year. The group first formed in 1962 after an item appeared in the local parish magazine and meets every month in Lomas Hall, Church Street.

Old pictures, archive materials and a DVD about how the area has changed over time will form part of the exhibit, which will be on display to members of the public at Lomas Hall, Church Street from noon until 4pm on Saturday, August 25.

Some of the group’s publications will also be on sale at the event.

Admission is free and refreshments will be provided.
