“Having been born and brought up in Abbots Bromley, I am delighted to be part of a team who are as enthusiastic as myself in researching our local history. There is so much to investigate within every area of our community that it is sometimes difficult to keep a focus on where the research is taking you. Without doubt, the best feeling is when it all comes together and we are able to present an interesting display of our findings. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our growing collection of photographs + oral memories across the years, and we hope that our work continues to be of interest to everyone.“Tom (Abbots Bromley Nostalgia Team)
We wish to thank the many Abbots Bromley residents who have allowed us to view and record their family memorabilia. Along with the many anecdotes, and personal stories handed down through the ages, we have been able to build a detailed picture of our local heritage. We are always ready to receive new information and welcome the continued interest shown for our research.
Much of our detailed research is also provided by other avid historians. We are grateful for the contributions and insight of Richard Roberts and Bernard Price and look forward to further input from them as we continue to develop our data base.
The archive department of ‘The Abbots Bromley School’ are also recognised for their many contributions to our work. It has reaffirmed the close relationship that exists between the community and the school for almost 150 years.
To date, we have received welcome financial support for our work from Abbots Bromley Parish Council, East Staffordshire Borough Council and Staffordshire County Council, as well as personal donations from local supporters. Thank you to everyone who has contributed.
