Mr Knapman, a Heathfield resident, has chronicled change in the area since the 1950’s and has put together several collections which the members have enjoyed over the last few years. This year the title is Around Old Heathfield. If you are Heathfield born and bred you will go down memory lane. A lot has changed while a surprising amount remains unchanged. Members and friends are welcome to come along. The AGM business will be efficiently brief.
