Research your local history with the Time and Tides project . . .

A local history and arts project, sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Medway Council and the Icon Theatre (Chatham) will be launched later this month. The project will offer local residents the chance to research their local history and take part in arts and drama activities.

There will be three launch events, taking place in Cuxton, High Halstow and Upnor - giving all those attending a chance to see objects from the local museum and an opportunity to get up close and personal to archive documents.

With projects available for all age groups, local residents are invited to drop in to any of the following sessions:

Tuesday 24 January, 3pm to 7pm (Cuxton Junior School)
Saturday 28 January, 9.15am to 11.30am (Cuxton Junior School)

High Halstow
Tuesday 31 January, 3pm to 7pm (High Halstow Primary School)
Saturday 4 February, 9.30am to 11.30am (High Halstow Village Hall - with the Farmers’ Market also taking place)

Saturday 4 February, 2pm to 6pm (Kings Arms pub, 2 High Street)
Friday 10 February, 6pm to 10pm (Kings Arms pub, 2 High Street)
