When regular Heritage Group members get together the conversation often turns to what Coleorton used to be like and what we did as children - memories of houses, shops, walking through woods, fishing in streams etc.
So we all had a bright idea - lets have an Open Day when everyone in Coleorton can get together and talk about their childhood around a cup of tea and cake.
It will be on Saturday 5 October at Viscount Beaumont School between 2pm and 5 pm. We have a lot of photos from schools, churches, Sunday school outings and so on. See who you can identify in the photos. And also houses and cottages long gone.
It's not just for oldies - youngsters can contribute their stories about what it's like growing up in Coleorton today.
Put the date in your diary and bring your memories and photos to share.
