The History Group meets on the first Tuesday of each month in St. Thomas Church rooms at 2.15pm.

Willing Members of the group prepare presentations of their choice.

For 2 years we have covered all aspects of the Victorian  period. In 2024 we have the working title of  “Ladies Lost in History”  (you have heard the name but what did they really do?) and the programme is below.

New Members and visitors are welcome to join us with no compulsion to prepare a talk.
