The group meets at 2pm on the third Monday of each month, in the Westlake 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 choose 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 programme for 2022 is set out below:
