September 29, 2023

We have arranged six winter Lecture meetings for the Society in the winter season, 2023 – 2024. Our lectures will be held on Thursday evenings.

The venue for meetings is the Church Hall, Long Street, Easingwold. This is on the west side of the street, just south of the Pelican crossing. The postcode, should you need it, is YO61 3JB. Lectures will commence at 7.30pm. We will hold a raffle. Gifts of prizes for the raffle are always welcome. Raffle tickets are £1 a strip. We are also offering refreshments after the lecture, which we know allows members to converse with the lecturer in an informal setting.

Our next lecture will be held on Thursday 5th October. That evening your subscriptions of £10 per person are due. Cash, or cheques payable to Forest of Galtres Society are welcome.

Our lecturer will be Frances Smith-Golland. Her subject is Islamic Gardens in Spain – Reflections! This is the lecture which she had intended to give us in October 2022.

Members will  be welcomed at the Church Hall, each paying £2 for entry. Guests pay £2 in addition, ie £4 each.

Locals will know where to park. For those coming from beyond Easingwold, there is a small car park in front of the Church Hall. available for several cars including those with mobility needs, and our speaker for the day. There is also a North Yorkshire Council carpark nearby, off Showfield Drive.

We shall be using the digital equipment which we were able to purchase in 2009, from our Awards for All Lottery funding.

It is with much pleasure that we invite Members and Guests to come to our lectures. We very much hope that you can support our events. We look forward to seeing you and sharing with you the winter lectures for which we have made preparation. 

Thank you               Frank Kirk, Chairman
