We decided after a couple of years as a Group that is was a shame not to share the content of some of our meetings as so much work goes into them and so much information comes out of them! We have covered such topics as diverse as Magna Carta, Time, Lollards, Weather and some of the high profile families of the 15 C. Topics for each year are listed below with detailed reports under each year's tag.
All our meeting topics are researched by all our members from secondary sources such as printed books and the Internet. Penny, our secretary compiles the Reports from the information we all submit.
