The year 1815 was a pivotal one in English and European History. It brought to an end over 20 years of warfare throughout the continent. Our study will examine the new country and continent that emerged and look at the new forces in society. No need to contact me in advance. Just turn up.
Open house for problems concerning PCs, laptops, tablets, smart phones, Kindles, iPads and most other things of that ilk! Whether your problem is with hardware or software - just turn up with your problematic device and we will see what we can do. It might be helpful to email either of us to say you are coming giving a short précis of the problem.
Each December the Group decides on the programme for the coming year. Members organise the visits to the church or village of their choice, finding a person to talk to the Group about its history, architecture and other features of interest.
This self-help group aims to give support to its members by sharing memories thus prompting recollections of our own past. Each month everyone reads something they have written and the Group discusses each piece and makes (helpful) comments.
The group meets once a month on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at the Tudor Kitchen at the Guildhall. The autumn term begins on 8th September. Everyone welcome
The group is suitable for mixed abilities, though experience with drawing helps, as work is self-directed. At each session we make observational drawings in cafes and other public spaces, including outdoors, mainly in central Bury St Edmunds.
Our Group members decide on a range of books that they would like to read and discuss over the coming months. This results in a wide and enjoyable selection.
We discuss a wide range of maritime matters. Flying boats, cable ships and cruise liners are some of the subjects for this year.
We are a friendly group, interested in trying new crafts as well as sharing ideas and skills to create solo and joint projects.
Our aim is to promote friendship by reading a wide range of books from the classics to contemporary fiction.
This group is currently fully subscribed and the new programme of study will be decided in September 2020 at the earliest
Various aspects of military history are chosen by members for presentation and discussion.
