The first half of our 2010/11 series of lectures, held monthly at St John's Church Hall, Hawthorne Bank, Spalding, was a great success. This was due to the interesting subjects and the excellent speakers giving talks on history, archaeology, our heritage, farming and much more.
Our Committee works very hard to ensure that a high standard is kept at all times. It is getting more difficult to find speakers, but with help from SLHA in Lincoln we manage very well. The attendances at our meetings average 48 over the ten-month season. We would like to increase this number, so anyone out there will be very welcome to join us. If anyone wishes to contact me regarding the group meetings please do so through the SLHA main address or by email through this website.
Our season of local history meetings starts in September and runs until July, when we break for the summer period. In December we have our Christmas social to show our appreciation to the members of the public who attend our meetings.
At all our meetings we serve tea and coffee and give everyone chance to talk or buy books and chat to the speaker. The books we sell are a good selection from the society - available of course at 20% discount to SLHA members.
Look for further news and reports of the South Holland Group here on a regular basis.
