We are a vibrant society with around 50-80 members with between 40 and 60 of them attending the monthly meetings.


We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm at The Croft School (July, August & December excepted)

Our next meeting is on 16th January 2024 when Tony Conder will give a talk on 'Gloucestershire and the Slave Trade'
