    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone had an old photo of the Fish & Chip shop which was owned by Mr Alfred Meek, the chip shop was in the premises where the small Cobblers pub now is. If anyone has a photo of the chip shop in the 1950’s I would love to see it.
    Kind regards,
    Pete Rochford – Chairman of The Joe Meek Society

    I am the chairman of the Gloucester Arts and Crafts group. We run a Summer School at Newent Community School , 29th July -2nd August 2019, which has 24 different arts and crafts courses. I was wondering if there is anyway your members could be notified about us. We are a non-profit making organisation with charitable status, ( Reg Charity No 1069039). Because of this our overheads are low and we can offer courses at a much reduced rate, although the quality of what we offer is exceptionally high. The organisation is carried out by volunteers. All courses are taught by experienced tutors, artists in their own right. We are only open for adults. Our organisation has been doing this for 39 years.
    Further details can be found on our website

    Hi , My great grand mother passed away in Newent in 1926 , at the time of her death she was Mrs Mary Ann Flower . I have a good history up until her third husband Alfred Flower ( the publican at the Swan Hotel Staunton ) passed away in 1918 . The year 1918 – 1926 are a complete blank . Any information would be very welcome . Best wishes M

      Hello Mr Hartshorn
      I will pass your question onto our chairman Dood Pearce – there won’t be a better person in Newent to answer your question if they can
      best wishes Ian Cocks

    Do your publications “Chspters in Newent History” cover the outlying villages of Linton, Gorsley, Upton Bishop, Kempley, Dymock?

    The reason I ask, is a large number of my Ible / Ibell family ancestors appear to have lived in those places for several centuries and I am keen to find out more about the area.

    I look forward to hearing from you .

  6. Diane Davies says:

    Hi my grandad came from Newent, he and his family where very big theatre goers and in fact 2 of his sisters where on the stage at some point in early 1900s. My one great aunt collected memorabilia from trips to the theatres and I have 2 autograph albums full of photos, verse and autographs early 1900s. I would like to know who I could contact about them as I believe that I could have some significant documents.
    Thank you very much

      best wishes Ian Cocks
