June 2016 Updates
Thanks to our recent Table Top sale our Village Gateway appeal has now reached £1,410 please follow our progress in the Gateway section.
Great Grant News! Shortstown Heritage is delighted to announce we have recently been awarded a £700 grant from our Bedford Borough councillor Sarah Holland as part of her Ward Funding to purchase much needed equipment. And we have been extremely fortunate to have secured a grant of £990 from The Harpur Trust in Bedford enabling us to give each schoolchild in Shortstown a centenary mug and history booklet in our centenary year in 2017. More details can be found on the Shortstown History Society page in the Gateway Section. Thank you to both these bodies.
A fantastic discovery in Shortstown! Go to our Royal Airship Works 1925-1931 section and see two fabulous RAW sports trophies awarded in the years from 1926 to 1931. Brilliant!
Two more photos have been found for the R34 crew and one for J R Pannell of the NPL who lost his life in the R38 crash. Go to the R34 and R38 UK crew pages to view these.
And finally Colin Nye of Shortstown would like to start a new cycling group in Shortstown - for more details go to the Shortstown News page in the Topics section.
