OUR GROUP

We usually meet 10am to 12 noon the Fourth Thursday in the month, but please check dates as other factors such as visits may affect the pattern.

Meetings are now held in Ripon Rugby Club, Mallorie Park Drive, ample parking outside and a voluminous space inside for social distancing.

To fund visiting speakers & pay for the meetings, we commit ourselves to a membership fee payable at the beginning of each term and generally non-refundable.

From April, the annual fee for the coming year will be £15 per person, this will be collected at the May meeting.

Meetings are planned to take the form of a PowerPoint presentation, or similar, followed by refreshments, questions, comment and discussion by members.

Members will also be encouraged to develop projects of their own and to suggest future speakers and visits, which will be arranged as funds permit.

Six of Maurice Taylor's books on various aspects of local history and the Cathedral are currently in print and available through local bookshops and the Cathedral giftshop.
