The History Box
This is a new addition from us to the community. It involves making up a box with original items, information and artefacts relating to a particular period in History, Soham based themes, past memories or things of national historical importance and interest.
So if you are interested, please contact us via this website or our facebook page (inbox us). There is a small charge of £10 for each box which covers delivery to you and subsequent pick up with associated printing and/or copying costs included in the price.
(Please note that all items must be returned to us, in the box and in the same condition in which they were lent to you).
Below is a link to a BBC Radio broadcast the Martin sister's did for us in readiness for the Soham WW1 Centenary Commemoration, as committee members. It tells the story of the late Joshua Martin and his time during the war and his life at The Red Lion Pub in Soham.
