All the archives Sue Short collected in the four years leading up to 2009 were displayed in the middle part of the village hall. The material was collected when Sue was researching the history of the village for her book: PRATTS BOTTOM – A JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE. All the archives have been donated to the village and will be stored in the village hall where they can be displayed at future exhibitions. Old photographs of the village were displayed in the form of slides projected onto the screen on the stage.
‘How did the village get its unusual name?’
Maps and reference books were displayed to help answer that question.
