Stone Bench in Woollard Village

This is our on-line archive of village life. Our aim is to get as much local history as possible uploaded to our web site where it can be enjoyed by other members of the community. There must be a vast amount of local history lurking in cupboards and drawers throughout Publow and Pensford where nobody can share it. We are always happy to receive further material such as photos, news articles, posters, programmes and similar for publication here. We can accept material by email in virtually any recognised computer format. If you only have paper copies available and are willing to lend them to us for a short period we will be happy to accept them and turn them into a suitable format. Please contact webmaster@publow-with-pensford-pc.gov.uk if you are willing to provide material for publication.
