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. 

Having completed our study of Spanish history we have chosen to study the history of Greece from Ancient Greece to Modern Day Greece.
