Activities

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

The topics we have heard recently have been Brewing in the Chilterns, The Battle of Trafalgar, a History of the Ffestiniog Railway, Sikhism and a talk by the Curator of Amersham Museum.

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.
