The 2011 AGM was held on Saturday 2 July 2011 at Northwick Manor School Hall, Northwick Road, Worcester WR3 7EA.

After the AGM attendees were able to follow the Northwick Manor Trail, which is based on the northern suburban fringe of Worcester City. The trail has helped to interpret, raise awareness and conserve the historic environment of the communities around Northwick.

The trail is a 5km (c.3 mile) circular walk through the historic landscapes and suburbs of Northwick and Bevere. Terrain is mainly easy going with a short, steep slope at one end, and sturdy shoes or boots are required. There is only one stile as the rest were replaced with wooden access gates as part of the project. A leaflet to accompany the trail has been produced and can be downloaded here. Also the Northwick Manor Community Heritage Project Leaflet can be downloaded here.

Delegates taking part in the day school at The Hive.

CBA West Midlands was pleased to collaborate with the Worcestershire World War 100 project in hosting a day school for local researchers, led by the CBA, held on Saturday 5 September 2015 at The Hive, Sawmill Walk, The Butts, Worcester.

The day school was set up to introduce the Home Front Legacy project, providing training on how to use an online toolkit to record surviving sites, structures and buildings, and help to safeguard the physical legacy of the First World War in Britain.

Information recorded via the project will be fed in to local Historic Environment Records, in order to ensure that surviving remains are formally recognized as heritage assets and can therefore be a consideration within the planning process.

If you'd like to find out more, or perhaps record sites in your area, full details and the online toolkit can be found at: http://www.homefrontlegacy.org.uk.
