The Charney Bassett History Group
The Starting Point
In early 2014, the Parish Council appointed a communications team to:
– produce the village newsletter ‘Charney Chatter’ on a monthly (rather than the previous bi-monthly) basis
– develop an email management system to allow the newsletter and any urgent interim messages to be circulated electronically
– assist with the promotion of the recently re-launched Parish Council website. The link to which is here.
After a successful introductory period, residents’ views were sought on future developments. This resulted in an investigation into how these improved communication channels might be utilised to help record information about the history and past activities of the village.
An exploratory meeting was held in late 2015 followed by an inaugural meeting in January 2016. The attendees decided to form a village history group which would operate on a less formal basis than a Society and utilise the Charney Chatter, email management system and the village website to help promote the Group, record appropriate information and provide a signpost to other sources of relevant information.
This new history website has been launched with the backing of the Parish Council.
Work is ongoing and the website will be promoted via regular updates in the Charney Chatter and via the email system.
