Meetings and Lectures

A history of Pettits of Wallingford, St Mary's Church - Wallingford

13/09/2017 19:45

At the Wallingford Historical & Archaeological Society (TWHAS) September talk, Rachel Pettit-Smith will present "A history of Pettits of Wallingford".
Rachel's talk will give a history of Wallingford's department store, and a little about the family who ran it from its beginning in 1856 to the present day. The business was started by two brothers and changed and expanded through the years as it passed to later generations of the same family until 1987 when it was taken over by another local family.
Over time it has sold a large range of merchandise and undergone several transformations while continuing to serve the people of Wallingford and the surrounding area.
This talk is very timely as it also complements the 2017 'Pettits: past to present' exhibition at Wallingford Museum.
