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.
There is no meeting in December 2018. The topics for 2019, after January are set out below:
