We have reprinted our first ever publication, dating from 1990, Langford through the Lens Volume 1. This book in 73 pages delves into Langford’s past with photographs of personalities and events explained in extensive captions. The reprint also has the advantage of incorporating amendments and discoveries made since publication by means of an errata list in the title pages. It is a nicely produced paperback book and costs £5 plus postage and may be ordered through this  website – see the publications page.

The current Programme is now available and we hope you will agree that we have a full and interesting year in front of us. Please come and join us—we do need new members and you will be very welcome. We have some very good talks at St Andrew’s Church Hall.

Mystery
Meanwhile, we have a mystery to solve. Mike Strange of Biggleswade Historical Society came across two photos both concerning Langford which he kindly passed on to us. The first shows what appears to be a Sunday School children’s Christmas party probably post-war and the gentleman in the picture is thought to be Jack Street. Can anyone identify the venue, the date, the occasion and some of the people?

The second photo is of Langford infants school in 1911. No explanation needed but it would be nice to put some names to the children. Can anyone help?
