Sutton Coldfield

English History

Place:United Reformed Church, Sutton Coldfield, B73 6AA
Day:Weekly on Mondays.
Time:10.15 am
Cost:£1

Definitive meeting dates are displayed in the Monthly Programme.

We learn about English history – starting with the Saxon Period and usually continue until the early part of the 20th Century. At this point we return to the Saxon Period and start again. The programme is continuous and can be joined at any time.

Judy presents a detailed and fascinating view of historical life and, although she uses our monarchs as a structure she roams far and wide across both kings and queens and peasants (usually referred to as “our ancestors”) – she revels in all their good and bad points – spares us none of the high and sometimes very low – not to say gruesome aspects of their lives and times. She particularly enjoys describing their costumes and jewellery (men and women) as well as their Machiavellian antics. Although she provides a handout each week, she uses her enormous enthusiasm and detailed knowledge to bring English history to life. She often makes us laugh. We make full use of the church amplification system and there is a ‘loop’ for the benefit of members who use a hearing aid.

We break for a cuppa and a biscuit at 11.00 when tea or coffee is provided by church volunteers – 80p per cup.
