SOS – Saving Our Sandfields

Sandfields-Work-Day-June-18_0013-1Sandfields Railings

I have seen several so called industrial heritage renovation projects looking like they will never be finished. A dab of paint here, a touch of primer there, lots started, and nothing finished.

These places look like pitherers paradises.

But these guys have it sorted, they start and don’t stop until they finish the job. The standard of workmanship is outstanding, and every bit is another step toward preserving out past.

Well done folks, we cannot thank you enough.

The Time Healers

Monday 9 July 2018 @ 8:00pm – The Bowling Green Lichfield.

Following our Annual General Meeting Jo and Did, will be joining us after our AGM and bringing history to life with their interactive talk on a typical Victorian pharmacy and diseases that were common in that period.

From dentistry to poisons, we’ll also take a look into the pharmacy’s back room where the medicines were made. During the second half of the talk there will be an opportunity to handle some of the items and ask questions.

This is an evening’s entertainment not to be missed where we bring the past to life and give you the opportunity to get right in close to how things were done in the past.

This is a free event, so please join The Time Healers in the Victorian Pharmacy with Lichfield Waterworks Trust

People Power – First Aid Training day

First-Aid-Training-Day_0002-1low-res

You will be pleased to know that the Lichfield Waterworks Trust volunteers had a great day doing their first aid training. It’s nice to know that preserving industrial heritage is far more than polishing and oiling rusty parts.

Statistically, these new first aiders are more likely to come to the aid of the public.  So, by the trust investing in its people, everyone in the community wins.
