We have resumed LIVE meetings at the usual time of 10.00am ON THE FOURTH THURSDAY OF THE MONTH in RIPON RUGBY CLUB, Mallorie Park Drive, but may continue to offer 'ZOOM' as well!
To participate in ZOOM meetings you must be registered with Marylyn Rafferty (firstname.lastname@example.org). You will then be sent the relevant access information two days before the meeting.
Our next presentations will feature:
Jan 27 Cartimandua: Queen of the North > Julie Prescott from Friends of Roman Aldborough
Feb 24 Ripon's Medieval Minster > Revd Malcolm Hanson
Mar 24 Samuel Butler & Ripon's Georgian Theatre > Maurice Taylor
For further information Email Maurice Taylor at email@example.com
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.
