Meetings will take place at the times, dates, and locations mentioned in the Group description.  From time to time Special Events will be added.

Our programme for this year covers a wide range of Local and Social History subjects, several of which are talks and presentations by members of our group.

Our "advertised" speaker for March - the Lord Lieutenant is attending a funeral, but indicated she is (official engagements permitting) able to attend our October meeting. Our October speaker - our member Ed Conroy - was able to swap and so our subject will be "The Charge of the Light Brigade" which took place 170 years ago...
