The History Group welcomes all U3A members. Our indoor meeting place is Central Methodist Church on Baker Street: time 2pm – 4pm on the third Wednesday of the month. Kathy and Sue help with admin for visits etc. and Anne Wilkinson, the organiser, with usually Margaret Smith but occasionally other members, help her in the kitchen. A very special thank you to all of them.
For November’s meeting we had a talk showing aristocratic houses then onwards to seeing aircraft of WW ll and others. We started in Derbyshire moved on to Lincolnshire then over to France where there were parachutes with mock landings of WW ll and vehicles as well. The exhibition wall in our library was empty so to fill the space Hucknall Heritage Society have set up an exhibition of images showing Hucknall Industries. Call in when you have a minute then let us know what you think.
There is no meeting in December. Moving on to January 2024, Peter Amour will tell us about his ‘Wanderings in and around Wiltshire’. Peter should have come this year 2023 but was unable to due to health problems.
May I take the opportunity to ‘speak’ to all members and send seasons greetings to everyone,
