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.
The final topic for the year was Weird and Wonderful and as to be expected we had a good selection - Francis Dashwood (of the Hellfire Club fame); Halloween; Barnham Freak Shows; Cricket; DNA; Last prosecution under the Witchcraft Act; Loch Ness Monster; Heath Robinson; What Can You See; Victorian Language of Flowers and How Did Knights in Armour go to the Toilet.
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
