Our speaker for the next Local History Evening on Thursday April 25th is David Whitehead who will give an illustrated talk about Humphry Repton in Herefordshire. This is particularly relevant to us as we have local examples of Repton’s work at Garnons and The Weir at Kenchester. As usual the talk takes place at the New Bridge Community Centre at Bridge Sollars at 7.30pm, admission £3 to include coffee and biscuits.
The list of our future meetings is as follows:
May 23rd The History of Lady Hawkins School, Kington by Allan Lloyd
September 26th Strange and Wonderful Herefordshire Churches by Penny Platts
October 31st Lost Country Houses of Herefordshire (part 2) by John Macklin
November 28th to be arranged
That’s the plan but it’s likely that the May talk will have to be cancelled if the community centre is being used for EU elections – Electoral Services have booked it so presumably they are expecting the election to happen. In that case I will try to book Allan for the November slot.
