Shirley Local History Group

Updated: 26th June 2017

January 2016 Onwards

After the completion of the Shirley Heritage Project in 2015, the members of the FoSJP History Research Group decided to establish the Shirley Local History Group in order to both continue and extend historical research beyond the immediate environs of St.James' Park, to ensure that the valuable information that had been collected was retained, was built upon further, and would continue to be shared with a wider audience.

The Shirley Local History Group is still affiliated with FoSJP, but receives no external funding, instead relying entirely on voluntary donations, for example from group visits and talks, including the Autumn public history talks from Autumn 2016 onwards.

For more information on forthcoming History events, or if you’d like to find out more about Shirley Local History Group activities, please contact the team on history@fosjp.org.uk.
