We have added this to the events page - List of Society Events 1998-2020

Talk 9th September 2020

Some 17 members who had booked places attended this talk - several others who had booked did not sadly turn up.  Those who attended were entertained by Sylvia Kent talking about her life and writing especially on local history.  Unfortunately technology let us down as the recording we made cut off half way through (the unmarked chip inside the recording device had low capacity) so we may be unable to make it available to the wider membership.

Bearing in mind the announcement that day of the 'Rule of 6' in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, consideration as to whether and if so how our November talk and AGM goes ahead will be made nearer the time. 

Past Times 70 - September 2020

The main feature is no 4 in the local blue plaque series talking about the Old School/Chapel of Ease. There is also mention of our President David Stacy who is now in a Care Home.
