The CVLHG Committee are delighted to announce that our regular monthly meetings are to resume this September 2021, after being suspended for over 18 months due to the COVID-19 situation. Speakers are booked and, so far, we have a Diary planned through to December. We will look forward to seeing everyone again and welcoming any new people. Please note: COVID-19 considerations will be observed.

Of course, although we have not been able to hold our regular monthly meetings,  we have been busy with our plans to commemorate the Cragg Hall devastating Fire of 11th  August 1921. The Remembering Cragg Hall Diary of events will begin with a special Presentation on Thursday 12 August, in St Johns at 19:30. Our very own Shirley Daniel will be presenting, ably supported by our also very own, Roy Collinge.

The programme will continue with an Exhibition “The Story of Cragg Hall on the three following weekends. St Johns Church Registers will also be on show. On Saturday 14th August only, there will be Guided Walks around the locality and the Cragg Hall grounds. Please note most of the walk is on private land, with the kind permission of the landowners.
