Tribute to June Humphreys

JUNE HUMPHREYS (1927–2016)

June smJune Humphreys, a longstanding member of the Society and its former secretary, died in April 2016. The Society offers the following tribute.

June was born in 1927 in Toxteth Park, Liverpool, the daughter of William and Hannah Wilson. She was 12 years old when the war started. She remained at home with her family throughout the war, unlike many others from her school who were evacuated.
The disruption of war restricted the opportunities for education that she would have liked. She took commercial classes at Skerry's College in Liverpool and became proficient in shorthand and typing, skills that she put to good use throughout her life. She found her first job with a leading firm of Liverpool solicitors at the age of 15.
After the war she began a pen-friend correspondence with a young man called Eric from the Lake District who was then serving in the army in Egypt. Two years later, when Eric returned to England in 1948, they met for the first time, both aged 21, and they soon fell in love.


Visit to the Hagley Hall Estate on 11th October 2014


A number of members of the Romsley and Hunnington History Society and the Romsley Art Group joined a group from the West Midlands Historic Buildings Trust and the Worcestershire Building Preservation Trust, firstly for a buffet lunch and then to walk the grounds of the Hagley Hall Estate.


Our Annual Summer Outing


Twelve members of the History Society were yet again treated to a beautiful day for their annual summer outing to Wightwick Manor, Wolverhampton on 3rd July 2014.

In bright sunshine we walked through some of the beautiful gardens to the coffee shop where we had drinks and biscuits or cake. At 11.00 a.m. we were escorted by our guides Margaret and Marion to the main house to commence our private tour - the general public would not be admitted for another hour. We split into two parties of six.
