Next meeting

26 October 7.30 pm by Zoom

David Morris will talk on the history of Shepherds Huts and Living Vans. These now fashionable items have been a feature of everyday life for millennia, and David has many early illustrations and will show us his own hut which was arguably the one described in Far From The Madding Crowd.
