Kelshall's History  

Local historian, Peter Gartside, has recently published a history of Kelshall entitled 

Millenium to Millenium. Kelshall - A History. 

Based on original research covering a thousand-year period, it also incorporates some areas of the village's history researched by the late Alan King, to whom the book is dedicated. Peter records the recollections of many of the village's senior residents. The book is over 220 pages long with 160 illustrations and has been printed to a high standard. 

Copies are available at £20 each, with half of the proceeds going to the Kelshall Church Restoration Fund. To secure a copy whilst stocks last, please email Peter at:

The monthly litter picks usually start by meeting at the tennis courts between 9.30-10.30am to collect rubbish bags and litter pickers and are usually finished by noon, at the latest. Hand in your equipment and collect a voucher for a free hot or soft drink from the Heath Cafe to be used that day.
