Local History Group
Some 26 members of Brixworth & District U3A met on Friday 23rd November 2018 to discuss and plan the proposed new Local History group. Having viewed the busy Brixworth U3A monthly planner, it has been agreed that the group will meet on the fourth Thursday of each month from 10 – 12 noon. The venue (to begin with at least) will be Maidwell Village Hall.
The first meeting will be on Thursday 24th January 2019
While we hope in the summer to have a mixture of outside visits/walks/explorations, the first few meetings, starting in January, will be talks. A very lively discussion took place with many suggestions for topics for us to take an interest in.
I have agreed to act as Group Leader to get the group up and running, with Sue Wintersgill (firstname.lastname@example.org) as my deputy. Interest sub-groups will get together to undertake various research projects with a view to presenting these at our monthly meetings.
The programme will be on display at the U3A Monthly Meetings but, to begin with, we will look at some of the “Spires & Squires of Northamptonshire” on 24th January and “Sulgrave Manor and the Washington Family” on 28th February.
