Filwood Chase History Society is based at The Park Centre on Daventry Road. They’re a small group of local residents who have a passion for local history and have created a wonderful resource for the community. Sadly, their Chair, Ivor Grimstead, recently passed away, but the rest of the group is determined to carry on and Jim Smith has been voted in as their new Chairperson.
The group has so far been awarded two Knowle West Alliance/Filwood Fantastic Small Grants. The first was used to make a promotional video filmed by local men’s group, Man Alive. With their most recent grant, they were able to buy a new laptop, printer and scanner for their local history heritage centre. They are looking forward to welcoming people back when restrictions ease and would love new members. You can get in touch with the group via their Facebook page @FilwoodChaseHistoryGroup.
