Lawford Lunch at the Drapers' Hall

The Lawfords at Drapers' Hall
A fine lunch was arranged at the Drapers' Hall on 28th April 2014 for 30 descendants of Samuel Lawford (1739 - 1845) who like his father Valentine, was Master of the Drapers' Company (in 1809). The family maintained strong links with the Company for the next two hundred years.

The Archivist, Penny Fussell, gave a talk on the Company and a tour of the Hall. Jeremy Lawford talked about the Lawford family history and Nigel Lawford talked about the family's long links with the Drapers' Company.

Car Club Rally in Stockbridge

Stockbridge High St

The Bean Car Club held its 50th Daffodil Run rally in Stockbridge High St on 6th April.  On a damp day the beautifully prepared cars gleamed and the sound of ancient gears being ground echoed round the town.
