Local History Group

HRCG wants to start compiling a local history of the Hillstown area and we would love to hear from you if you have a story to tell or if you have any interesting photos or artefacts from years gone by e.g. events at Hillstown Orange Hall, the Orange Lodge or Black Preceptory, Hillstown Pipe Band, the Lambeg Drums, Crea Hall, Terrygowan School, Shop and Post Office, and local characters, etc. in fact anything relating to the area that can be recorded and passed on to future generations so that they know about the history and heritage of the area. At this time of centenary commemoration of the First World War and 70th Anniversary of VE Day we also want to find out about any local people who served in any of the wars so if you have a relative from the local area who served please let us know.
