Roy Hirons ‘My Pershore’

February 5th 2019

A fascinating evening showing postcards and photos of Pershore’s past including many of the old racecourse situated opposite Defford Road which opened in 1899 moving behind what is now the High School in 1934. One photo featured “Bruiser” Woods the official race starter in 1929 and grandfather to the current president of Pershore Civic Society John Alexander.
