We are a friendly group with a shared interest in history. If you are interested in joining us please let me (Yvonne) know. None of us are experts but we enjoy learning a little bit about a wide variety of topics. Either ring me or click on the envelope in the top right hand corner and send me an email.

October's topic was Women's Organisations and is the usual case now you managed to come up with a variety of aspects - some of which involved personal experiences or mambers of your family. In no particular order we had The National Association for the Welfare of Childeren in Hospital; Vestal Virgins; FANY's; YWCA; The Panacia Society; Women's March October 1789; WRENS; WJAC; Women's Pioneer Lecturers 1892; Sea Guides.

Next month is Weird and Wonderful and I look forward to what people come up with that has a historical basis.

I have put together a program for next year. Please let me know if there is anything you would prefer. The May outing will be to the Diving Museum. I don't have a date at present but will give everyone plenty of notice.

For anyone who is interested in general history you might like to give us a try. There is no compulsion to contribute each month, if your preference is to just come along and hear what we have to say that is fine. It is just an opportunity to explore the past
