Sandiacre History Group

Material from one of the collections thtat MACE cares for is to be shown to the Sandiacre History Group.

Two years ago John Kingsbury, of Wollaton in Nottingham, deposited a large collection of standard 8 mm film with MACE.  It turned out that actually the collection was not one but two: the first was shot by his father Ivan Kingsbury, the second by Ray Doncaster, a friend of the family.

Both were keen amateur film makers throughout the 1930s and 1940s and both lived in the Sandiacre area.  Consequently, MACE has a wealth of moving image material relating to this Derbyshire village just outside Nottingham.

Elements of this material will be shown following the Sandiacre History Group’s AGM on 20 September at 7:30pm at the Methodist Church, Sandiacre.

The evening will take the form of a discussion about the films that are being shown, so if you want to know more about Sandiacre and its history or feel you can add to the discussion please feel free to come along.

You don’t have to be a member of the History Group to attend but space is limited so make sure you get there early.  For further information visit the Sandiacre History Group’s website.
