History Open House at Brighton in February 2013
Plans are under way for a History Open House event to be held in conjunction with Heritage Week, Feb 18 to 24, 2013. This will be under the auspices of the Brighton Heritage Advisory Committee and managed by myself and a group of interested volunteers. Specifics are being determined as we speak. There will be lots of history on display in Brighton with many local groups and individuals doing their part. Many interesting things to see!
