Thinking of trying something new this year? 


Then why not come along to the History Group? 

The History Group meet on the fourth Friday of every month except December at 10:00am at the Grafton Centre. We’re a lively, friendly group who enjoy learning together about the past. Our programme is determined by the interests of the group and we decide together what we will study. Before we had to close due to Covid 19  we had begun  studying the history of Spain so we will finish this in the next three months.
