The Treasury Team – December ramblings

Just a few slim-line diaries at £2 each for the year 2017 remain on the FOR SALE shelf so please make contact with Margaret or David a bit quick to buy or reserve your diary whilst stocks last.  Approaching the new year diary-less is unthinkable!  We send The Season’s Greetings to everyone.  David & Margaret […]

Aspects of History – November meeting

In November, we concluded our look at the Normans with, thanks to Tony, a most interesting DVD on Domesday.  There is NO meeting in December.  For our next meeting, on 26th January, we are pleased to welcome Michael Milsom who will be presenting ‘Architecture and History along the Silk Road’.  This is sure to be […]

Society Today – November meeting

Homelessness. Gillian Brown tackled this complex topic which she presented very clearly, firstly by defining what a homeless person is, i.e as one who has no definite abode and is very dependent on official help.  Such persons have a very poor quality of life and many are ex-convicts who live in a world of loneliness […]

Bird Watching (Monday) – November meeting

We are a local (within one hour’s drive of Market Harborough) birdwatching group who try to help each other improve our identification skills and which beginners are very welcome to join.  The tail-end of storm Angus scuppered our last visit so our 2016 annual species list remains at 90.  We may or may not add […]

Singles Sunday Lunch (No 3) – November meeting

After negotiating the bad weather plus the ever increasing volume of Sunday traffic on the Northampton Road, ten hardy members of Group 3 met for lunch at Market Harborough’s Golf Club.  It was a lovely atmosphere with good food and excellent conversation.  We welcomed a new member, Jill Dickerson, and hope that she will continue […]

A very interesting and informative presentation by Louise Bunce on the old and new history of the Market Harborough Building Society – and Building Societies in general – and the MHBS Charitable Foundation was enjoyed by 40 members of the group at our November meeting.  The growth and progress of The Society since the middle […]
