They say that the sun only shines on the righteous!  Well the twenty-six members of the Local History group must be amongst those numbers as, after days of experiencing dreadful weather, we were blessed with a sunny day for our trip to Lamport Hall.  We all enjoyed a wonderful afternoon, being taken around the Hall […]

Bird Watching – September meeting

Well, after August’s fiasco at Clifford Hill Gravel Pits all I could say about September’s visit to Priory Water and Kirby Lakes is that we enjoyed a nice walk, a good old natter and the weather was good!!  Surely our luck will turn this month.  Bruce White.

Play Reading (Modern) – August & September meetings

In August, reading Somerset Maugham’s ‘For Services Rendered’, we witnessed the disintegration of the comfortable certainties of a family’s existence in the wake of the First World War and the Depression.  Sorely in need of something to cheer us up this month, we’ll be giving Maugham another chance, this time in a farce – set […]
