I am writing to invite you to the next event on our Past in Mind calendar following the excavation.
We had a very successful and enjoyable time during the dig despite the weather. I hope you managed to catch the press coverage in the Herefordshire times, Journal and on BBC Hereford and Worcester.
We had a great response to the Visitor days that the National Trust kindly organised for us – we had over 150 people visiting over the course of the two days and Ian Bapty rose to the occasion and gave a very informative talk to all those present on the two days. The feedback from the public has been very good with a lot of interest shown in the project overall which is encouraging.
So we are moving on now to look at the initial results and to planning our winter programme. I do hope you can come and share in the discussion and get involved in the next stages.
Here are the details:

Please let me know if you are attending and if you are staying for lunch so I can make the necessary catering arrangements. There is good parking outside the hall and for those who do not know Whitbourne, the hall is at the heart of the village but I have provided the postcode for those of you using satnavs etc.
I am really looking forward to seeing you and to hopefully capturing a little of our Studmarsh spirit again so I do hope you can come.
