Friday 13th October at 1400 - Special Afternoon Meeting

As an experiment, we will be having an extra afternoon meeting for members. Usual meeting place - different time!

This will also differ from our usual presentations and be an opportunity for discussion on a) our project for recording local parks and open spaces and b) any items you have or research you are undertaking and would like some help, advice or suggestions. It will be quite informal with a cup of tea provided.

If you would like to bring a friend along to introduce them to "Local History", that would be most welcome.

Tuesday 7th November

Richamal Crompton and Bromley - the author of the Just William books and her connection to Bromley.

Tuesday 5th December
