Folkingham Heritage Festival

2nd August 2021 We are delighted to confirm that the Aveland History Group has been successful in obtaining a grant from South Kesteven District Council which will enable us to upsize an already impressive offering for the Folkingham Heritage Festival in September. For details of the festival refer to September Events.

New Addition - Dates for the Diary

26th July 2021. It has been a long-term aim of the Aveland History Group to promote not only our own events but to generate a calendar of events across the societies and groups of the region. With the advent of many talks and seminars now offered via zoom, access to a wide range of topics and speakers is now, either free or for a small fee, available to view from the comfort of your own home. We have now managed to tame technology and to incorporate a new tab “Dates for the Diary”. We do not profess to include everything available, nor to be responsible if events are cancelled at short notice, but all the events included should link back to the original sites from which they were generated.

So sit back and enjoy.

New Website up and running

Folkingham Past and Present History Group have launched a new website. Including fabulous photographs from the soon to be published book on Folkingham by Martin Smith, the site is a feast for the eyes. Not only that but if you enter the shop you will have a chance to subscribe to his book, get your own name in print and make history of your own in Folkingham.
