At-Home History

AT-HOME – HISTORY GROUP

The History Group has formed an ‘At Home’ group during the period of Lock-down. Members are the existing members of the History group that has been running well for a few years – we were based at the George - and it is now opened up to a few more members, and we all work from home, by email.

Each month we prepare a one or two page summary of the life of a famous public figure – past or present: each member chooses who they want to write about – we try to ensure no clashes. Contributions are emailed to the coordinator by the 3rd Friday each month and the coordinator then circulates all contributions to all members – it can be a fascinating ‘combined email’ to open.

Some of the figures we have already featured have been Montgomery, Freud, Dahl, Castro, Gorbachev, Einstein, Kenneth Allsop, Enver Hoxha, Thomas Masterman Hardy and John Reith.
