Archive Group We thought that this month we should tell you a little bit about what we’ve been up to over the past year regarding the Archives of YOUR Village, Arlesey. Last January we met with Emma Cook who is the Museum Development Officer for Bedfordshire and she explained that we are eligible for various grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund but until we have a ‘base’ for our Archives we can’t apply for these. As a result we are hoping that when the new road is in and the development of Arlesey begins there will be a space for us. Meanwhile we will be purchasing a laptop that will have all our information and pictures on which will be available to members of the public to check on all aspects of Arlesey life in the past. We hope to have this up and running by the Summer. This months pictures are rather random! Once again we would ask you to get involved with the Archive group if you think this would be of interest to you. Simply contact Lesley at the Council offices, 01462 733722, or the chair of the group, Jim Randall on 01462 733169, we’ll be happy to have you along to one of our quarterly meetings. 10 | February 2016 | on the button, 32 Stotfold Road, Arlesey.
