By Willis Fleming Historical Trust on April 21, 2011
Colin Davison, author of a new Ursula Moray Williams biography, will speak about her links with Hampshire, including her years spent at North Stoneham Park, which inspired such books as Bogwoppit and Grandpapa's Folly and the Woodworm-Bookworm. Harry Willis Fleming will set this in the context of the story of North Stoneham House, built for his family in the first half of the 19th century.

Call for donations for the Time Capsule

To mark the end of the restoration, a Time Capsule will be sealed inside the Stoneham War Shrine in May 2011, with a set duration of 93 years and a scheduled final opening date in 2104. 

The Capsule will contain elements of local history and community memory, and will be a record of the area's identity, with items that reflect the spirit of North Stoneham, past and present. Such items might include handwritten memories, ephemera, photographs, drawings, letters to the future, and small objects ... Can you contribute?
