As it is not feasible to hold in-person meetings, all meetings are via Zoom for the foreseeable future.
Our April talk by Janet Few (aka Mistress Agnes) was an informative and entertaining look at the lives of our seventeenth ancestors. In Coffers, Clysters, Comfrey and Coifs we heard why we might need a bum roll, the colour of C17th carrots, and many uses for urine! The meeting report will be available soon.
Our final meeting of the 2020/2021 programme is on 25th May. The AGM will be followed by A History of Birds by Simon Wills. We will hear the historical ‘back story’ behind many of our most familiar birds and how they acquired their names. What did Charles II keep in his bedroom, and Florence Nightingale in her pocket? Join us to find out!
Published to celebrate the Society’s 60th anniversary, Images of Wickham is full of fascinating photographs, from views of The Square and Bridge Street, to recognisable buildings such as Chesapeake Mill and The Barracks, along with day to day scenes of village life, local businesses and celebrations.
