Jersey

Social History

Our group continues to grow and all members are welcome to drop in on any of our lectures if they are interested in a specific topic. We try to cover a wide range but with a bias towards Jersey history and stimulating subjects related to contemporary issues. We have had another series of memorable lectures this year thanks to a generous number of speakers who all are willing to share their expertise and volunteer their time for free. We are very grateful to all of them and always welcome new lecturers. If you want to suggest certain topics or know of any potential speakers please contact me - Tom. See below for a list of planned talks.
