The Group discussing the The British Conquest of Canada during the March 2018 meeting

The group meets at 2pm on the third Monday of each month, in the committee room at the rear of the Village Hall.

The purpose of the group is to discuss historical issues of interest to group members and members themselves chose the topics. One of the group undertakes to introduce the topic to facilitate the discussion (not a presentation or lecture). This involves researching it sufficiently to carry out the task; members are also expected to be able to contribute to the discussion as well as gain knowledge and understanding.

New members are very welcome. 

The next meeting is scheduled for Monday 16th March when the topic will be: The Chamberlains.

The programme for the remainder of 2020 is set out below:

April 20th            The History of Post War Germany

May 18th              Beeching and the Car Industry

June 15th             The Post War History of the British Aircraft Industry

July 20th              TBC

August                 No Meeting

September 21st     Viscount William Armstrong

October 19th        The Mitford Sisters

November 16th     The Black Death

December           No Meeting


 Meetings are held on the third Monday of the month, 2pm-4pm, in the Westlake Room at the Village Hall. New members welcome
