Newsletters

1960s

Most early Newsletters contain an annual report, notes and news. These do not just give a flavour of the society, but changes in the town are often mentioned. Reports of the previous season’s lectures are rare until 2005, when they became a regular feature. We thus have little information on lectures given before then, except for the prestigious Croome Lectures. Early ones also contain editorial and treasurer's report.  Early treasurers all seem to have been employees, even managers, of Lloyds Bank, where our account is to this day! Most early newsletters also list the committee of the day.

Publications

One of the aims of the society is to publish information concerning the past of Cirencester and its environs. This has been achieved by publishing Newsletters containing short articles and, recently, short reports on talks held during the year (these latter now online). Longer studies have been published as the Miscellany series. All publications to up to last year have been lodged with the Gloucestershire Archives. They can be found by quoting reference D10989, and are open for research at the Archives. All publications can be found using the tabs above. We do have a small stock of back numbers of both Newsletters and Miscellany. If we have what you want, back issues of Newsletters are £3 each and of Miscellany are £5 from our editor. The Society is keen to have assistance for future publications. If you feel up to editing or even researching new material, our Editor will be pleased to hear from you. If you have an article suitable for publication in short form about some aspect of local history we may be able to help. Contact our editor
