Parish Council minutes dating back to 1894 to go on show
Minutes of Berrow Parish Council dating back to 1894 together
with other items of interest discovered during the recent clearance
of the Parish Office will be on display next week.
The items will go on show after the village's Annual Parish Meeting
on Tuesday, May 3rd at 7.30pm in Berrow Village Hall.
Berrow Parish Council Clerk Lynn Smith told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"As well as the minutes, some really interesting items were
found during the recent clearance of the Parish Office and it
was suggested that it would be a good idea to display these for
the parishioners of Berrow to look at before they are placed into
secure storage at County Archives."
"We found several original thank you letters written by
soldiers returning from the Second World War who had been given
a homecoming gift of £5.00 which must have been a lot of
money to them then."
"There will also be old brochures and newspaper cuttings
dating back many years."
Refreshments will be served after the Annual Parish Meeting and
there will also be a chance to talk to all the councillors and
