A generous donation has been received from Nancy Battersea.
Thursday 03 January 2019

  1. Blenheim Court resident Nancy Battersea and some of her friends raised over £220 by making Christmas and birthday cards to sell, along with other gifts, to residents and friends at a recent sale at Blenheim Court Care Home on Farnham Road, Liss. Nancy, who had her 100th birthday in 2018, decided to donate the money to Liss Area Historical Society in recognition of the help the Society gave towards a World War 1 display at Blenheim Court in August 2018.

    Vice-Chairman, Mike Jordan, and treasurer, Judy Hayes, received the sum of £222.40 from Nancy at a ceremony in December.  Mike Jordan said that the Society committee and members were most grateful and that the money was a real boost to the Society’s funds. It would be put to good use, helping to pay towards the ongoing task of looking after the village archives.  Thank you Nancy and friends.
