Social History

Day & Time

We are a group of amateur historians interested in how ordinary people lived rather than the great topics of national and political history. Each month we look at some aspect of social history from any era and place. Some meetings take the form of a talk prepared by a member, sometimes we watch a DVD and other times we have an outing to a place of interest either locally or further afield.

2nd Thursday Afternoon of the month at 2 pm

Venue Victoria Hall Ash

The Group is now run by a Small Committee of:

Anne Hill, Pat & Len Scott, Jill Townsend, Pam Jarmain and Peter Barker

Please contact Anne Hill for more information.
