Bidford Community Library

Our History Society has taken on responsibility there to manage the "Bidford and District Studies" section, which covers all aspects of history in Bidford, surrounding villages and South Warwickshire. We are creating additional local historical material for the library which will be accessible through print and the library computer terminals.

This is an exciting development for the Society, reflecting our wide competency in promoting interest in history. It further confirms our leading position as a Bidford community organisation.
