WORTH CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS
We were planning a Celebration Weekend to remember the 100 years since the sale of our village in 1919. Momentum was gathering following Planning Meetings in October, January February and March but all was brought to what we hope is a temporary halt by the Coronavirus Lockdown.

In the meantime we have been collecting various submissions about our history, especially the last 100 years, from various contributors and we are gradually posting them here on the Village Hall website for all to see. In that way we will build a virtual museum which one day we hope to walk round in real life as per the original plan. If you have a contribution towards our growing virtual museum please contact nickviney@hotmail.com
