Halsgrove is proud of the award-winning Community History Series which now extends to well over 250 titles. Working closely with the communities involved, the publication of these superb A4 hardback books is a culmination of a project which also serves to collect, identify and conserve an archive of photographs which is preserved digitally on behalf of each community.
Halsgrove is always pleased to hear from communities who wish to embark on a new project. Additionally, a small amount of funding has
been identified to allow New Editions of some of the long out of print titles to be produced for a new generation with, where appropriate, additional material to update the life of the community to the Diamond Jubilee.
Some communities have already become involved in this programme, but we would be very pleased to hear from others, where their Halsgrove Community History is no longer in print, who would like to see it updated and made available in this way.
Congratulations to the following communities who are the first to take part in this programme: Ashburton, Barnstaple, Bramford, Bridgwater, Dulverton, Helston, Hemyock, Lostwithial, Minehead and Newtown (IOW). Their books were available in October 2012.
