17th February 2020:
There was a great turn out last night with over 30 attending including several guests. Ken Besfor brought along a fantastic selection of arms & artefacts for us to see & handle, whilst giving a very entertaining insight into the life of a British Tommy.
Tanks were also an important part of the First World War, but being a little large to bring along, Peter James provided a selection in miniature to add to the story.
9th December 2019:
“The Shrunken Village of Rougham” by Ant Robinson was attended by 37 members & guests. Not only was it a fascinating description of part of a village which has all but disappeared, but it also sparked a lot of discussion & exchange of information afterwards. Mince pies were served as a Christmas treat as well.
An illustrated talk by Dr. Sue Gattuso about St. Mary’s Church, Houghton-on-the Hill in Norfolk. 9th September.
Village Walk 24th August 2019
20 people attended Ant’s 4th Historical Walk on a lovely warm summer afternoon. Starting at The Well we visited the Church & discussed (with photo Info. sheets) the School over the Church Porch.
We then proceeded to the Reading Rooms ( by kind permission of Viv Cross). Then we took the Path across to the Airfield, Denys & I (+ Richard Fanneran) talked about Wartime at RAF MASSINGHAM. Most people were amazed that we had a Post Mill there.
Returning back via Mill Lane, Scotsman Pit & looked at Barrack House & The Dabbling Ducks fossilised Gables!.
2 hours, happy people.
