I have issued a challenge to all our Face Book Members.which I extend to ALL or members. With your extra time at home at present, why not undertake some historical reading or research. It desn't matter if it is local history, history of your family, or n event or period in history you fancy looking into. Then let us know via email to our secretary Roy Wood, with HISTORY CHALLENGE in the subject box. If time we may include some of your results in the Mwmbers' Newsletter. roy.wood3@ntlworld.com

A prize is given for the winning Lady and the winning Gent.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BRING A PEN OR PENCIL.  The evening then finishes with light refreshments (PLEASE BRING SOME TO ADD TO THE TABLE IF YOU CAN) and a chance to get to know the other members.
