History of the Society We started off in November2002 with a bequest in George Freeston’s will, leaving an amount of money to perhaps continue his work re our village’s heritage. With the help of his executors, our first meeting was held then. George did not want the society to be named after him, so eventually it was decided it should be called “Blisworth Heritage Society”. extract from chairman’s report by Maureen Smith to first AGM 16 Jan 2004
