Due to the ongoing difficulties with Covid 19 we have of course been unable to resume our meetings and all the speakers for the 2020 programme have been cancelled. They have all expressed a willingness to be re-engaged once we are able to begin a new programme. There is as yet no sign of when we may be able to do this. Once it is possible it may be that we will need to fill the first few slots  of the new programme with talks from members. If you have anything that you would like to present please contact Nigel Craik (secretary).

  1. Hi

    Just doing family history research and while I knew I was born in Burnham, have finally worked out it was in the orginal Kinver Terrace block and have been able to match a few family snaps as taken here before we moved ‘up north’. If of any use for your site do let me know. I’m not sure it would have looked so grand back in the 1950s mind you!

    1. Thanks for your comment Simon. We already have quite a lot of photos of Kinver Terrace itself, do you have any photos significantly different to those of the town already on the site?

  2. Good morning thank you for such great work in this fantastic website! How can I get in touch with you as I am currently writing a presentation on paradise and Burnham which I will eventually make into a documentary and would appreciate your knowledge i also have some fascinating information which I have discovered hope this gets to the people who make this website possible
