Activities

The Group is visited by speakers on a varied number of historical topics from local history to wider historical events.

Topics we have enjoyed recently have been Amersham Museum by the Curator, making models of the Royal Carriages, early memories of India 1940-47, the history of papermaking, the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst and presentation of WW1 by history students of Chesham Grammar School.

Members at times also share their particular enthusiasms and knowledge by giving short talks to the Group. Not all members want to speak publicly but are ready to comment and ask questions after the talks which adds to the liveliness of meetings.

For further information please contact the Convenor.
