Due to the Covid19 virus all meetings have ceased until September. It is hoped to restart on the 3rd Friday morning 18th September at The Elms, Old Bedhampton at 10:00am, with a programme for the coming year. The programme is almost complete, and with luck the planning team should be able to meet in July/August to firm up final details.

Whether born and bred in the local area or more recently settled here, we all have an interest in what makes the place where we live – its buildings and its landscape, its people and their industry, culture, successes and tragedies. We have a varied programme in the Local History group with sessions suggested and led by group members. We have heard talks about Havant Workhouse,Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Portsmouth Pals and the Development of Paulsgrove and Wymering; visited Uppark, Portchester Castle, the St Cross Almshouses in Winchester, the Map Room at Southwick House and Winchester College and taken part in History Quiz Walks in Havant and Old Portsmouth.

Some sessions take place in our usual meeting room at The Elms in Bedhampton, some out and about locally and some further afield.
