Last Month’s Talk at Ore Centre (14th June) “The History of Directories” by Andrew Longley
Andrew has spent decades building a huge collection of directories, some of which a very rare. We tend to take these publications a little for granted and can easily miss the real value they hold for providing the more interesting insights into the lives of our forebears both of themselves personally and of the communities and times in which they lived.

Winchelsea’s Poor by Malcolm Pratt
Visiting the small, picturesque village of Winchelsea today you would find difficulty to see evidence of real need. Back in the day, however, Winchelsea was a prominent port and rivalled Rye in its influence. Later, it was the centre for very many surrounding farms. As such, very many of the inhabitants of the village and round about were of a much lower economic definition. Ex-teacher and author, Malcolm Pratt, is an authority on Winchelsea and his research into the village is on-going.
