January’s walk on the 26th took in the area around the Langtons where we had an impromptu lesson on hedge-laying and also recruited a number of new members – the group is full now!
The February walk will start from Irthlingborough at our normal 10am start time. Irthlingborough is approximately twenty miles away and around a thirty minute drive. On arriving in Irthlingborough go straight on at the roundabout in the centre, then turn immediately right into the free car park. Park at the bottom nearest to the church. […]

On Sunday, 22nd January, thirteen members in Group 1 of the Singles Sunday Lunch Groups met up. It was wonderful to see everybody again for the first time this year – it seems such a long time since the last meeting at the end of November. We joined each other at The Red Lion in […]
Tuesday, 17th January, saw the first meeting of 2017 of the Local History Group. Thirty-eight of us thoroughly enjoyed a talk given by Bob Hakewill on Market Harborough’s Carpet Industry in the 18th century onward and of the remarkable Clarke family.
