Warwickshire Yeomanry Museum

The Museum reopens on April 14 2017. As it is based on volunteers it is generally open at weekends and bank holidays, The best method to visit is to book. Go to http://www.warwickshire-yeomanry-museum.co.uk 

Bidford History Trail

 A copy  of the Trail can be downloaded from this website, available under "Recent Publications". It covers 3 sheets and can be read on a tablet device walking about Bidford.

Major Publication:              "We Will Remember Them"

Following 10 years research this book looks at the background which prepared  Bidford for the Great War.  The book chronicles the stories of the men of Bidford and district who gave their lives in the Great War. Researched by Bob Marshall and supported by our Society, this substantial publication is a landmark in our local history.

The bulk of the print run has been sold already. A few copies are now available from the Society Treasurer.

 Committee Members

We would welcome fresh (younger?) faces on the committee. In particular we need someone to act as our minute secretary. After 5 years of faithful service, Judy Smith is stepping down from that position.
