November 2010 Events

 Local History society in asssociation with the BBC Turnback time project, in Aldridge, Walsall west midlands BBC One is creating a bold new TV moment by taking a modern day High Street and catapulting five modern shopkeepers and their families back to the 1870s when the High Street was born. Over the course of six episodes, they’ll be fast-forwarded through a fascinating century of change, right up to the modern era .The programme is to be called "Turn Back Time - The High Street. " BBC Learning has, invited Aldridge Local History Society to become a partner to the series and run their own activities and create local timelines, thus enabling more people to get involved in exploring and creating their own High Street history. Partner events are to be interactive and will be promoted on the new BBC Things to Do database. Aldridge Local History Society is pleased to have been accepted as a BBC partner for this venture. ALHS has been invited by MAPSEEKER Archive and Publishing to take up some space in the empty former Harmony Furnisher shop unit on High Street from 13th November through to Christmas which provides a venue to run the “Turnback Time Project” In the shop unit ALHS intend to build: a 'then and now photo display of Aldridge High Street; There will be a very large aerial plan that people can see where the old buildings and shops used to be; A living time line will be created that people can come in and add to with stories memories or even more photos; We hope that people will volunteer to have their memories professionally recorded. We may have some evening lectures or events pertinent to retailing or the High Street. MAPSEEKER and many Aldridge retailers and local artists will also have a presence in the shop unit. Aldridge Local History Society look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to their ‘Shop’ on High Street Aldridge (by Barclays Bank) over the coming weeks. If you have any old photos of Aldridge High Street we hope that you will bring them along to add to the display. (We will take a copy if you wish to keep the original)
