Life seen through the eyes of reporters during the 19th and 20th century will be the topic of Haverhill’s Family History group this week.

Pip Wright is the guest speaker at the meeting, which will focus on crime and punishment over the last 300 years.

The talk is taking place at the Old Independent Church Hall, in Hamlet Road, at 7.30pm on Thursday. All are welcome.

Earlier on the same day the group will also be holding a drop in session for all those who have worked at Gurteens. The firm is one of the area’s longest running businesses, having been established in 1784, and has employed thousands of employees down the years.

Anyone who has worked at the company is invited to attend and reminisce with old colleagues and friends at the Studio in the Arts Centre at 2pm.

A similar event for people who worked at Signpost/Marchants will be held at the venue at 2pm on March 17.

The events are part of the Family History Group’s project ‘Haverhill At Work’, which is supported by OneHaverhill.
