Heritage Open Week

Just a reminder that the Friends are taking part in Heritage Open week commencing next Saturday the 10th September with an event based in our Civilian Garden- 11am to 2pm

The Friends will be there to put names to those bomb victims buried within this area and give everyone an insight into when and why it was originally designed some 70 years ago. Its been reborn several times so has a history of its own.

We will also be joined by Matt Felkin who has done a lot of research for Birmingham Air Raids Association and he holds a wealth of information about casualties and bomb sites around the City.

There is still time to sign up to assist other volunteers recording inscriptions of our headstones for a digital map !  Follow this link to Eventbrite to book a place.  Wednesday 14th September 10am-noon. This event will be led by Caring for God’s Acre.

Our final event will be a stroll around a number of graves that have been researched by Balsall Heath History Society and the Friends. There are still a few spaces- e mail us on friendsofbec@gmail.com

Friday 16th September 2pm.
