Correction: The name of Brian Stalley’s guide dog who retired in April is Justin, not Jason. We offer our sincere apologies to Brian for this unfortunate mistake and for any distress caused .
The Send Neighbourhood Plan Event shown in the Diary of Events on Saturday 20th June in Lancaster Hall has been postponed until the Autumn due to unforseen circumstances. The new date will be publicised as soon as possible – please watch out for it.
The History Society’s latest exhibition at Ripley Museum is entitled The Homefront. It is about Send and Ripley during the Second World War. It includes a little bomb shelter adjoining the museum which children (and small adults) can climb inside and imagine what it might have been like to wait out a night of bombing. The exhibition is open every Saturday morning until September 12th. See the The Ripley Museum Homefront Flyer
