Wrington Local History Society
Activities Normally, we hold a minimum of 11 meetings yearly, an AGM in April, and a summer break in August. Potentially, loose subgroups may be set up to investigate various aspects of Wrington’s past Annual Membership £12 to cover room hire and refreshments Lecture attendance fee £1 (non-members £2.50) Meetings are usually held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month in the school room of the URC Chapel, Roper’s Lane, for refreshments at 7.45pm before the speaker begins at 8pm. Contacts Chairman: Nick Joy <wringtonlocalhistory@gmail.com> Secretary: Mark Bullen <mark-bullen@hotmail.com>
All being well, and subject to no new government guidance/rules on COVID, the URC Chapel are hoping to open their doors to societies etc. in June That being the case, I am attaching the programme for the rest of this year. Our first meeting will be on 15 June, with a Gordon Young film show. You will notice that I have allocated the AGM and "Bring and Tell" session to August, at which point I will take on the treasurer role from Felicity and Steve Osman will take over as secretary. With the current programme fixed until the New Year, this will give him time to arrange speakers for 2022. Steve has advised that the URC may decide to us the chapel itself for talks, rather than the schoolroom we've always used. This will enable social distancing to be achieved easily. We will obviously be guided by any rules the URC put in place regarding masks, sanitiser, refreshment arrangements etc. Hopefully, most of our typical audience will have had both vaccine jabs by the time we meet. Best wishes and keep healthy, Mark.
