Cancellation of Meetings
     It can come as no surprise that in view of the continuing uncertainty about meetings and the regulations involved the committee has reluctantly decided that the rest of the meetings for 2020 should be cancelled with the hope that we might start again next February. All people who have paid their subscriptions for 2020 will be regarded as having paid their subscriptions for 2021.
     The Family History/Local History Fair has been postponed until next May and the Local History Day at the Museum has been abandoned.
     As there will be no easy way of distributing or selling the Journal it will be held over to next year.


We are sorry to announce that tonight’s talk by Richard Bradley has been cancelled. It seems unwise to proceed at this time of worsening crisis .

We hope all our members keep well, and understand our reason for taking this action. We hope to reschedule the talk at a later date.

Those of you who knew John Lilley will be sorry to hear that he died on Christmas Day. Some of you will be aware that he has not been well for some time, but he was always pleased to receive the Newsletter when I gave it to him. John had been a member of CADLHS since the first meeting which was held at Chesterfield Library where he was the Local Studies Librarian. He held the position of Vice-chairman for many years and only retired from the committee earlier this year.
