July 2021 update to current situation surrounding public meetings reconvening:


Blidworth History Society committee have decided NOT to hold a full member meeting on Tues Aug 3rd.

Despite the relaxation of the imposed restrictions, due to the recent significant increase in Covid19  infections and hospital admissions we have reluctantly decided to cancel and review the situation in September.

Member’s safety is our main concern and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Welfare function room as soon as possible.

The Committee



As you are aware, since March 2020 the Societies monthly meetings have been cancelled due to the Covid19 virus restrictions and this message is intended to explain the current situation, the work that our committee and officers have been involved with since lockdown and our hopes and expectations for 2021.

At the present time we cannot be certain of the restrictions that will apply in 2021, and therefore we are only able to keep you informed of what we hope may be feasible.

The Blidworth Welfare management are taking advantage of this down time to carry out some remedial work inside the Function Room where we meet. Our committee recently inspected the work in progress. We have not been advised of a completion date for the work but we are assuming all will be completed by the end of December.

The advice from the Nottinghamshire Local History Association is that all local history groups should not consider meeting as groups until at least January 2021 and we are obliged to follow this recommendation.

Our committee have been utilising the Zoom app for regular meetings since the lock down and continue to answer queries from people with Blidworth connections regarding their family history.

The last members meeting was our AGM in March. At that time several attendees paid their annual members subscription and this of course will be held over until March 2021.

We have also instigated a monthly news sheet that is circulated by email to interested groups and individuals who request a copy. Please advise us if you wish to be included, its available to anyone.

We are contacting all our members to keep them updated, but if you have not received an email or letter from us and you are a member of the Society contact us at External link opens in new tab or to check we have your correct contact details

The email is being sent to all members that we have an email address for but please pass the information on to any member who may not be connected.

Take care and stay safe, best regards,

Your Committee.

For the Immediate future and until further notice our monthly member's meetings are postponed due to the Corvid-19 virus restrictions. Please continue to enjoy our website and any comments are always welcome. Contact us by email at ""
