21st May 2016
The first open day on Saturday, May 21st, was a huge success and allowed the general public into the JR for the first time. The first visitors, Doreen and Ken Townsend, had travelled all the way from Buckinghamshire.
Over forty people visited the archives during the course of the day, a good response!
The U3A Local History Research Group will be using the JR to research into their local history projects on a regular basis.
