The Society always has a lively and varied programme of interesting talks and visits which are selected to appeal to a wide local audience.
Since the Society is at present unable to hold its regular monthly meetings and talks in the Village Hall because of Covid, we are attempting to arrange online meetings and talks via Zoom in their place. The first talk took place on 28 January and was attended by about 80 members.
Notification of these is made via email direct to you, in good time.
Please note that any scheduled programming may be subject to re-timing at short notice but we will always let you know by email if you have provided us with your address.
The next online talks are:
The 2021 Season Talks and Visits
The Romans in Dorset by Chris Copson
Villains, Victims and Tragedies by Brian Bates
