POST MEETING: It was a great turn out at our monthly meeting, with lots of familiar faces, as well as some new ones. There was tea and coffee provided for members, as well as non-members that was interested in finding out about what we do at the Bridgtown History Society, what’s going on and how we support our local area.
A skeleton Calendar has been added in the Events section and will be updated as we book the Events.
