Holcot History : Interested in getting involved?

what's on in holcot

Holcot had it’s own History Society until 2016. Are you interested in restarting it? If you are, let Lisa know (clerk@holcotvillage.co.uk).

The Society has an archive in the Church Room and some funds. If the Society does not restart, the Parish Council will recommend that the Archives are transferred to the Northamptonshire Archives and the remaining funds applied to a Parish project.

See the Holcot in History webpage for more about Holcot’s history.
