A brief ceremony to unveil the history boards will take place on the Village Green, Bridge Street, opposite St Nicholas Church. Join us afterwards for light refreshments in the Church room and see images of the boards. Parking is available at St Nicholas (access from the Southwick Road).
The boards highlighting different aspects of Wickham’s history – using text, photos and illustrations – will be at key locations around the village.
Visitors can also use their smartphone at each board to link to more information on the Wickham History Society website.
This joint project between the Wickham History Society and Wickham Parish Council was made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
