At Blakesley Hall this month members heard a round up of our City Beautiful centenary project from Jane and Rachel of Mrs History then enjoyed guided tours of the Hall and Old Yardley village and joined in the family fun at the Summer Fête. During the centenary project we held almost 50 additional events, where we engaged with over 1700 people and 190 school children, had over 5000 social media interactions and were supported by 200 days of volunteer time. 4 films were produced by school children, 6 new Blue Plaques were erected and 1 centenary arboretum was replanted!
