Local History

Last month we visited the National Gas Museum in Leicester – what a wonderful experience.  We were told the remarkable story of gas – from the early manufacture of town-gas to the introduction of natural gas, plus viewing an amazing display of artefacts, including a fully equipped 1920’s kitchen.

On Tuesday 15 October we will welcome back Bob Trubshaw – his talk has the intriguing title of Mawming and Mooning: The Minds of Medieval Masons.  From past experience, this should be an interesting and entertaining talk and we look forward to seeing you all at 2.00 pm, with the usual tea and coffee available after the meeting.
