I have noticed while adding new pages and updating, that pages which filled the screen in 2000 @75%+. no longer do. Due no doubt to changes in technology & screen proportions. I have updated a few of these pages, but to systematically do them all will take months of work. So please excuse any such pages, I will endevour to bring pages up to date as and when I get the chance. BAC 07/06/2019

THE LEVERSTOCK GREEN CHRONICLE
an in-depth history of one village in Hertfordshire UK.
Click to link to principle LG Chronicle web pages.
For a variety of reasons I can no longer spend the same amount of time as in the past on my research and updating this website, though I DO still explore our local history and continue to find new historic items of interest. e.g.from http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/ which now publishes items online.
It is still my intention to update existing pages on the Leverstock Green Chronicle website and to add new information as and when time permits. With Social Media, and the digitisation of many national archives new information and images surface regularly. AS well as saving all this information to my computer, I ensure all new information is documented and printed and added to the growing number of Chronicle Archive Albums. The contents of these albums are catalogued and added to a spread sheet enabling myself (or anyone else in the future) to readily find the information, even should the website itself no longer exist.
If YOU have any information relating to Leverstock Green's history and members of your family who lived here, including photographs, ephemera etc.please contact me so I can arrange a meeting and/or exchange email addresses so I can include your information in my archive of Leverstock Green's history.
Thankyou, Barbara Chapman 08/06/2019

The LGVA Newsletter for October 1998 carried several tributes to Fred Buglass inside, which can be see on his main webpage (See above button, which if clicked will take you to that page.). The front page of that Newsletter, as can be seen from the small picture above, broke with tradition and was simply given over to items related to Fred, including the paragraph below referring to the commemorative plaque.
The plaque was painted glass and was designed by Village Resident and good friend of Fred Buglass, John Lawson, an expert stained glass artist. (Press button above to go to his page) The small paintings depict Fred's beloved alpines,Snowdrops and Cyclamen (L) and having spent most of his working life in the aircraft industry, a representation of Blackburn Botha Aircraft from WW2 (R)
Ron Teasell unveiled the plaque, covered in a drape made by Audrey Armstrong, at the end of the first part of the evening.
