52 residents # 25 unexpected

Well nobody expected covid!

I didn't expect, when I started researching the history of the Springhill area, that it would turn into a major project, a website, an article in a family history magazine and being asked to speak at the Society for One-Place Studies conference.

I didn't expect people I didn't know to send me material which has enriched the project.

I didn't expect it to expand into so many areas.

I didn't expect to meet so many lovely people and to be privileged to call them friends.

I didn't expect it to take up so much time. (Actually that one is false!)

Thank you everyone.
