Coronavirus Update Dec 2020
Following the positive vaccine news we are hopeful that after Easter 2021 our group will be able to gather once again at Christchurch.
In anticipation, are we are planning an exciting season of Friday evening lectures for members to enjoy.
There will be lots to look forward to in 2021 as next year's events will also include the postponed History Fair in June and the Early Man conference in the autumn.
Membership fees for 2020 have been carried over to 2021 so if you have paid up to date there will be no membership fees to pay (there will however be a charge if you would like to receive the 2021 journal) - details to follow in the new year).
In the meantime, we are able to offer an exciting programme of online lectures and talks for members to enjoy. Click here for more details.
