Ledbury & District

Local History

Meetings at 2.00pm (for 2.30pm) on the 3rd Friday of each month, in the hall to the rear of the Baptist Church in Homend, Ledbury

Most months we usually have a speaker, with occasional visits to relevant places of interest.

Recent meetings have included Sally James on Seven Decades of Womankind and Jennifer Harrison on Life in Ledbury 1914 - 1919

Future Programme:

Nov 16th - Peter Garner Natural Wonders of the Malvern Hills
Founding member of the Wildlife Advisory Group for the Malvern Hills, Peter's other roles include the botanical and dragonfly recorder for Herefordshire, recorder with the Worcestershire Flora Project and membership of the Malvern Hills Bird Group. He will show beautiful photos from his work over the seasons.
Dec 21st - Quiz & Christmas Social
Brian Hudson has been persuaded again to entertain us with his Quiz at the annual Christmas Social with mince pies. This event is always enjoyable, and although this year it’s very close to Christmas, I’m sure we shall have a good turnout!
Jan 18th - Richard Simkin The Dymock Poets
Richard is the Chairman of the Friends of the Dymock Poets and will give us a fascinating talk about the lives and works of the poets. He is asking for interaction with the audience; favourite poems etc., maybe to be read aloud.

Members will be contacted in advance by email or telephone, with a reminder of the next meeting.

Although a very large group, there is no limit on numbers and we welcome new members. However, please note that we shall have to refuse entry to the hall once the limit is reached, so please arrive in good time

We look forward to seeing you at the meetings
