2018/19 was a successful year, welcoming 60 members and covering an interesting range of local stories from Gunpowder Plot, the history of Witley Court and a visit to the beautiful baroque church nearby and a successful trip to Beauchamp Centre at Newland.
The programme for 2019/20 will include history of Huguenots and the Age of Enlightenment, an update on Elgar’s Life, visits to Needle Museum and Cathedral Stone Mason tour and many other Local historical stories and we will hear about the fight by Chartists and it’s local connection (cancelled last year due to illness).
We are a friendly group meeting in a spacious hall on Ombersley Road and will welcome as many new members as possible for the new session starting on 17 September.
