Cottesmore History and Archaeology Group

Cottesmore History and Archaeology Group are currently working to produce another book, and we are looking for your help with it. Sometime ago we captured on tape memories of village life from some of our older inhabitants – this new book will bring together extracts from these interviews, and so aim to present a picture of village life between the 1930s and the 1970s. We would like to illustrate these memories with pictures of village scenes from that period – so if you have any photos that you would be willing to lend us we would be happy (and very grateful) to hear from you. If you think you can help, may we ask you to contact us by ringing John Meara on 812350. Many thanks.

    Internet Safety Event - 9th Feburary

    Rutland County Council are organising an Internet Safety Event aimed at parents to come along and find out about online gaming, image sharing, privacy settings and online controls in order to keep their children safe online and when using their mobile phones.

    Our young people have a lot of input through schools but as parents, it is difficult to know where to go to access support when your child begins their journey into online gaming and using mobile technologies. Furthermore, apps change so quickly it is difficult to keep up with what is current and safe to use.

    Please would you be so kind as to print off this poster and share with your own networks. We have key speakers from the UK Safer Internet Centre as well as opportunities for Q and A session to ask any questions relevant to help and support.

    We thank you for your support in raising awareness of this event. We feel it is so important to offer our parents the opportunity to come along and gain support and advise in how to keep their children safe on line.
