The group began life in 2015 and is currently full – although we do operate a waiting list.
We meet in members’ homes on the first Monday of each month from 2.00pm to 4.00pm and there is a charge of £0.50 per meeting for refeshments.
Each member makes a presentation of about an hour once a year on any nineteenth century topic of their choosing. This is followed by a discussion over refreshments. In addition we have a festive meal, summer barbecue and field trip with partners each year.
