Newbridge Village Archive: Only A Week To Go

Village archive returns for a second year with more photos and memoirs than before

If you haven’t been along to the second exhibition of the Newbridge Village Archive, you only have one week to make that visit.

The exhibition is made up of photos contributed by residents along with memoirs written by past and present villagers, which we’re told, make fascinating reading.

Included in the exhibition is a display following four generations of one special Newbridge family through their photograph album.

It all takes place at Newbridge Community Centre and as well as being open during the day (check listings for precise details) is open tonight between 7.30-10pm.

The exhibition comes to an end on Saturday 2 April with a coffee morning 10am-12pm.
