Beer Regatta
Happy Valentines Day from Beer Village. The wonderful Beer Men’s Shed have launched a digital museum which will capture our beautiful village history. Head over to www.beervillage.co.uk and click on Village History to take a look...........As of today - Valentine's Day - Beer has got something new that villagers have been asking for, its own Museum. But, as we are like Buck Rogers and this is the 21st Century, it's a digital museum!Building on the great work that Karen Stevens has done with Beer Memories, the new Beer Memories Museum is a place to keep your best old photos, sound recordings and videos of Beer. Sharing your photos of Beer means that you can bring back memories to villagers and visitors alike, but they will still be there for generations to come. As Valentine's Day is all about love, and as during COVID lockdown you may not have too much to do, how's about showing some of your love of Beer by digging into your photo albums and sending copies in for the new Museum? It would be very easy to forget what Beer used to be like - how many shops there were, the people who lived here, the fun of Regatta and what the village looked like. Karen has already sent in over 150 pictures to start off the Museum, and the chaps at Beer Men's Shed have been gluing it all together to make it work. Beer Parish Council has donated the digital space to store it all, and the National Lottery has provided a grant from its Local Connections Fund that will help to get it looking professional. You can find the new Beer Memories Museum by going to beervillage.co.uk/village-news/new-beer-memories-digital-museum/OR you can go straight to www.beervillage.co.uk/museum/ Please send any pictures or documents for the Museum to Chris Pickles at chris@picklesnet.com - and any questions or suggestions about the Museum too. ...

Today we had a rather lovely long phone conversation with Alan Abbott who told us that the first printed Regatta programme was in 1923. They were printed from 1923 to 1939 and then there was a break due to world war 2 until 1947. So we’re still looking for these years -1923 to 192919381948 and 1949All of the 1950’s1960 to 1963 and 1965 to 1967It would be great if anyone has these years.......? ... See MoreSee Less
