THOSE with an interest in the history of Portchester will find much to enjoy at a nostalgia exhibition.

The Portchester Civic Society is holding its annual exhibition of photographs of the village’s past in the foyer of the library in West Street, Portchester. The exhibition runs until Saturday during library opening hours (9.30am-5pm Thur & Fri; 9.30am-1pm Sat). Over the years the society has gathered a vast array of photos, including pictures of the gala in the early 1900s, to the precinct in present times.
