About the group

Our group meets at Maids Moreton on the 1st and 3rd Thursday morning of each month. All members have input into which speakers we book and places we visit.

This year we have had some excellent speakers including James Beckett (History of Silverstone Racing Circuit,) Frank and Daphne Preece (the Giffards,) and Phil Marsh (History of Wolverton Railway Works.)

We have already visited Wicken, where we loved the Phoenix café, and enjoyed a river trip to Windsor via Runnymede, and further visits are planned to the Bodleian Library, Bedford Museums and Dorchester-on-Thames.

On our `field days` we usually try to include lunch at a local cafe or hostelry. In February we enjoy a group lunch at the Villiers Hotel, and we always finish off our year`s programme with a social and quiz at Maids Moreton. We are a very friendly group and always welcome new members.

Contact the Group coordinator for further information – details shown above.
