Changes to the contact page
Since before Christmas the website has been targeted via the contacts page, with emails containing dangerous links. Because I get a copy of all the emails I was able to alert the recipents to the dangers and I redirected all the contact page emails to the sender of the dodgy emails. This action has stopped the nuisance so I have now reinstated the contact but directed all the emails to the webmaster (me) and I will triage all of them, delete any that are not safe and make sure that the rest are sent to the appropriate person.

    Bar Hill Early History update
    Last Friday, 22nd January 2016, We had a visit from Brian Falk one of the team that was instrumental in the original creation of Bar Hill.
    Brian has passed to us a number of interesting documents and photos from the early days and I will make them available as soon as I can. This may take a little time as I need to digitise a lot of slides.
    Brian has sent us a document that shows the growth of the village from the original 2,500 people to where we are today (4,500). Click here to view it.
    I have copied the first set of 10 original drawings that were used to support the original planning proposal. Click here to view them.
