Have your say

Many readers of The News who live north of the city might like to know of the Cowplain Local History Society, which has been formed recently.

Some 60 people turned out for the first meeting, all with a willingness to get involved.

Their aim is to publish a book on the area.

If you would like to join the society, then the next meeting will be on Wednesday, October 16, at the Borrow Centre, Cowplain.

Please ring David Hawkley, the chairman, on (023) 9225 0719 for more details.
