LATEST BLUE PLAQUE UNVEILED AT BATLEY LIBRARY

The fourth blue plaque bearing the Batley History Group name was unveiled at the beginning of October. It was a long time in the making but we hope you all agree that it was well worth the wait!

The series of blue plaque commemorations were initially overseen by group member Peter Connor until committee member Steve Turner took over the reins some two years ago now. Peter, along with Steve, fitted the plaque on the Tuesday after the last group meeting and its official unveiling was carried out by Steve himself on Friday October 1st. A small albeit dedicated crowd were there to witness the latest proud addition to our plaques.

Members were consulted with regards to where they felt plaques should be put in place and the next one on the list will be started on in the very near future…

NOMINAL FEES STILL IN PLACE

Having been able to offer admission for free since our meetings resumed after the COVID pandemic, Batley History Group will now begin charging for entrance. Initially, the fee is going to be £2 each for Members AND Non-Members.

The normal fees of £2 for Members and £4 for Non-Members will be reviewed at a later date. We thank everyone for their continued support…
