History Group

The History Group always welcomes all U3A members especially new ones. Our indoor meeting place is Central Methodist Church on Baker Street: time 2pm – 4pm ish.

The next meeting is April 19th when we are visiting Bassetlaw Museum at Retford where we will see the Pilgrims Gallery display. The Coach leaves Hucknall Market at 11am – leaving Retford at 4pm. I’m told there are many café’s in Retford and a Weatherspoons next door to the Museum.

Wednesday May 17th 2pm is the date and time for the meeting at Central Methodist Church when Mike Kelly will be with us. He will tell us about The Fall of Saxon England, Christmas Day 1065 to Christmas Day 1066 which is the most traumatic year in English history.

Kathy and Sue will be at the main meeting in May to take bookings for our Visit to Ashby de la Zouch Museum on June 21st.
