This group was set up at the beginning of 2015 to try and sort through the documents and artefacts that were stored in the Chapel. They were in a muddle to say the least and had to come out of the Chapel because of the restoration that will be beginning in 2016.
We have already put the artefacts in boxes and the documents have been sorted into subjects. The photo's are slowly being recorded (there are lots of them) and hopefully by doing this, it will make it easier if somebody wants to see a particular item and if we will be able to use them for an exhibition or two, later, when the Chapel re-opens.
There are 5 of us in this group, Nigel & Lin, Nigel & Lisette and myself. We would love it if you have any photos, documents, artefacts or memories that you could share with us. We would copy any items or gratefully receive any donations to the archive. Please contact me or the RV Country Park office.
We also have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/RVCP-Netley-Heritage-Group-747572011986277/timeline/
I took some photographs of a few of the artefacts for you to look at.
Here are some pages from an autograph book which belonged to Kathleen A. Joane.
