Monthly Newsletters

Each month since September 2020 the Stoke Local History Group has issued a newsletter. These are far more than a simple "what's on" publication, but contain in-depth local history articles and much more besides.
The year of publication can be selected below - then click the month, which will open a PDF file in a new browser tab, or in your own PDF programme, depending on your computer's settings.
