Our season of summer excursions came to a close with our very successful private visit to Wentworth Woodhouse.

The details for the winter programme are complete and the programme cards have now been printed and nearly all have been distributed to members.  The information, in brief, is showing on the website’s footer.

Our first event of the winter programme  is a day visit to Barnsley. Please book for this as the Secretary needs to know how many people wish to come. Professor Joan Fletcher, our new President, will be taking us round two of her three exhibitions on ‘God’s Land in God’s County: Ancient Egypt in Yorkshire’.

The two exhibitions which we shall visit are at Experience Barnsley, otherwise known as the Town Hall, and at the Cooper Art Gallery a short distance away in central Barnsley. The third exhibition will be held at Cannon Hall.

We invite everyone to come along to our lecture meetings at the Parish Church Room on Tanpit Lane, Easingwold, commencing at 7.30pm.

Annual subscriptions are £7.50 per person  due in October. Guests are welcome at £2 per person per event.

Do come along to some or all of our events.  We are a friendly group, and we like to meet new friends and welcome old friends coming to our meetings.  After lectures, we have tea or coffee and biscuits (40 pence per person) available to encourage members and guests to talk with the lecturer in an informal setting.
