Shipston-on-Stour Area

Current Affairs

This group meets from 10 am - noon on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month in the Council chamber (West Street, Shipston).

We discuss the major events which have occupied the media since we last met. This year, it has INVARIABLY included the topics of Brexit and Trump!

Our Leader, Graeme McDonald, is the repository of a wealth of historical information, and he guides us patiently through the development and unfolding of events which led to WWs1 & 2 (he conducts wonderfully orchestrated and informative battlefield tours in France) and the minefield of dramas unfolding in the Middle East, Turkey, Russia etc, which always seem to involve the Ottoman Empire!

In order to keep the meeting interactive, membership is limited to 20 people, not all of whom ever turn up to every meeting, meaning that we're typically a group of 15.

We charge £2 for room hire and coffee, and any surplus subsidizes our Christmas lunch - this year in the Bower House.

For more information, send a message to Richard Henderson.
