History

The History Group meets on the third Friday of the month in the Reading Rooms, High Street, Chinnor, from 2.30-4pm. We have currently around 30 very friendly members and would welcome any newcomers.

The meetings are mainly made up of speakers from our own members plus guest speakers, which will include some from the CHaTTR group. We usually have a day out once a year visiting something of local historical interest and of course we have a special meeting at Christmas with a party, quiz and lots of fun! As you can see from this year’s very mixed programme, we have something of interest to suit most people.

Please do try us out and if you would like any further information ring Hilary Goodchild.
