The Society had a stall at the hugely successful Local and Family History Fair at Valence House on Saturday 15th September 2012; even the Mayor stopped by to purchase a book from us. Many thanks to Pat Manley, Richard Chapman and June Johnson for their help in welcoming visitors.
Photograph shows one of the many interesting stalls.
The Barking and District Historical Society and Chadwell Heath Historical Society had a very enjoyable Coach Trip to Dickens World at Chatham Marine on Sunday 16th September 2012. Sadly the river tour of the site was not available, but we had great fun in the Victorian classroom where a number of our members were forced to sit in the corner wearing dunces caps. Many thanks to Richard for organising the outing.
