Pre Covid, Nether Edge History was looking forward to a bumper year of activities. Our 2020 calendar was packed. We had planned further mini presentations at our regular Union Hotel open meetings. We also had booked outside key speakers to follow on from the success of Peter Machin’s talk on Sheffield Manor and Mary Queen of Scots’ at the Bowling Club in 2019. We also had planned more of our very popular guided walks. All these activities were postponed and postponed again even into 2021. We do, though, intend to start up again as soon as it is safe to do so.
However, we have not been idle. A new book was published costing £10, ‘Nether Edge in World War 11’, and even without the help of our usual Farmers’ Market stall it has been selling well. We now have the splendid news that on 31st Dec the sales of Nether Edge in World War 11 paid off the loan from NENG to cover printing costs. This is a record for any of our publications.
