When: Third Monday of each month, at 2:00 pm. Where: The Westlake Room, Balsall Common Village Hall, Station Road. Cost: Please ask the co-ordinator.
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.
