Pirton Heritage Support Group
One of Pirton's Key History Groups
By Jonty Wild
Founding members and current committee are:
Diane Bailey (Secretary), Tony French Treasurer), Rosie Hamilton-McLeod, Chris Ryan and Jonty Wild (Chairman)
The Pirton Heritage Support Group (PHSG) was formed in 2006, with the aim of “conserving, preserving, recording and where possible, to making the history of Pirton more accessible to Pirton residents and other interested parties.”
It aims to do this by undertaking Pirton history related projects and activities itself or, where practical, supporting other groups, organisations or individuals undertaking projects and activities which reflect the aims of the PHSG.
The first of these projects was the Pirton World War 1 Project, which aims to record the lives of the Pirton men of the Great War, both those that died and those that survived and has resulted in the book: The Pride of Pirton.
We would welcome suggestions for new projects, e.g.:
- New books
- Re-publishing existing works that are now out of print
- Adding documents or photographs to the Pirton ‘Archive
- Film, i.e. the PHSG has support in principle from the Pirton Pumpkin Club for a project to convert old Pirton related Cine film or Video to save it for posterity. The question now is – is there any?
