In the coming year Rob plans to:-

(1) keep on researching the history of the parish;

(2) establish an Alresford, Essex Local History website;

(3) continue researching the "Roll of Honour" using the weekly released "Burnt Papers" (WO363) and 1921 Census Records from January 6th - investigate applying for a heritage grant from the National Lottery (Wivenhoe got £9000 in 2016 for research, website, PCs and publishing);

(4) adding QR codes (linked to the website) at the War Memorial and listed buildings (Starting with St Peter's). This can also serve as an interim measure at the War Memorial until we have full details of all who served/died from the Parish;

(5) establish with Cllr Ann Wiggins the Alresford History Group - monthly meetings and annual calendar;

(6) help villagers with family and history searches by printing out the Census Returns (1801-1921); Parish Registers; 1840 tithe map and allocation; c1919 hand-drawn map. Folders placed in the Village Hall, Pointer and St Andrew's Church;

(7) film a history guided walk as Routes for Roots with link via the website;

(8) investigate having/making local history/map boards at the key crossroads ("You are here")

(9) continue looking for grants to aid the above.
