A gathering of Pagets is taking place at Bromham Social Centre on Saturday evening with some family members coming from the United States.

Members of the family are arriving from Baltimore to meet other Pagets. Dave Paget, who is helping organise the event, said: “They want to meet as many descendants of George Lewis Paget, born in 1849, as they can.

“George and his wife Harriet had 13 children but sadly they lost three of their sons in the First World War. However, the remaining ten children were most productive and so the hall at Bromham Social Centre should be thoroughly packed on the night.”
