Members' Night

On 22nd March 2018 we have our AGM followed by an event, Members' Night, the first of its kind for the Society, in which we will offer members a chance to display objects, photographs or publications, and recount anecdotes relating to local and family history. For this to be a success, we are seeking volunteers to present and/or chat for about five minutes on an item or topic of interest. If you would like to participate, and we know you all have something to offer, please contact Aileen Short.
