Members of the Shirley Local History Group have given public talks to local community groups including church groups, other local heritage organisations and

Presentations we can deliver include:

  • The History of St.James’ Park
  • Shirley & the Railway
  • The Barlow & Ellyett Homes
  • Shirley’s First World War Book of Honour
  • Oatlands House
  • Shirley & the Railway
  • History of the Shirley Schools

In addition we have delivered workshops in local schools which support the KS2 and KS3 History curriculum, particularly around Shirley’s role in the Second World War.   We have also run sessions with uniformed youth groups such as the Cubs to support ‘badge-work’ in Local Knowledge.  Recently, we have been able to deliver workshops over the internet to ‘virtual’ classrooms.

If you would be interested in either a presentation or a workshop for your community group or school please get in touch history@fosjp.org.uk.
