Bearley A to Z Filmshow – A Trip Down Memory Lane

Bearley A to Z Filmshow – A Trip Down Memory Lane

On Friday 28th February 2020, over 70 people were taken on a trip down memory lane in Bearley Village Hall.  We covered many great topics from The Call Box at Bearley to David Harrison’s MG Magnette and everything in between.

Over 180 images were showcased showing how times have changed in our wonderful village.   It was a true delight to see so many old and new faces, many of whom had been at the previous six Bygone Bearley events.  With such a convivial atmosphere, each slide was embellished by comments from the audience, adding memories and stories that flooded back.

Besides present day Bearley Villagers, there were many folks with roots based from the village, but had travelled from as far away as Shropshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire.  Some of the highlights were:

  • Dot Entwistle was delighted to see an image of her Land Rover Series 1 LWB Station Wagon from the early 1960s that she had not seen before
  • Derek Bull showing some enhanced photography showing a petrol filling station added to Snitterfield Road, a tramway running along Old Snitterfield Road and Queen Mary riding in a Citroen half-track whilst visiting Bearley Holiday Camp!
  • The raffle during the interval helped us to raise a massive £375 for local projects!

Please see the Bearley Past Days Facebook page for more of the great photography taken by Martin Salt, we’ve added a small sample on this post to show you what a great event this was.

Please do get in touch with the Friends of Bearley Village if you have any questions about the day or if you have any feedback for our next event.
