Local History

The Coordinator of this group is Maureen C. The group currently meets at The Wild Boar on the first Wednesday of the month from 6.0pm to 7.30pm.

This group is interested in the history of people and places across the North East.

The purpose of the monthly meeting is to plan and discuss visits and to view and share resources, information and memories. The group also shares information about forthcoming events, so that members can attend if they wish.

The cost is £1 per person, per session.

Planned visits to places of interest are on the third Thursday of the month in the afternoon or an earlier start if required. Events of interest are also added to the diary.
