TALKS WITH COFFEE AND CAKE
A regular programme of meetings takes place on the last Thursday of most months. This is your opportunity to hear an interesting talk with the added incentive of a cup of coffee and a slice of delicious home-made cake. The talks are open to all (you don’t need to be a member) and cost just £3 per person. Unless otherwise stated, meetings are held at St Joseph’s Hall in Cromer Road. Coffee is served from 10.15, with the talk beginning at about 10.30 and lasting about 45 to 60 minutes.
25th May – David Berwick will talk on the Treasures and Curiosities of Norfolk Churches.
29th June – Anne May will talk about Sir Thomas Erpingham a hero of the Battle of Agincourt
27th July – Simon Kinder will describe the work of Sheringham’s Lost Son, Gerald Holtom, The Peace Man (the artist who designed the famous CND anti-nuclear-weapons symbol)
There is no meeting in August as the Art Exhibition is then running.
28th September – Dr Tom Williamson, the acknowledged expert on this subject from the University of East Anglia, will talk about Norfolk Landscape Archaeology
In September 2016 the Society arranged a sailing on the Lucy Lavers lifeboat based at Wells-next-the-Sea. Ten of our members and friends (the maximum which can be accommodated) went out on the water. A further sailing has been arranged for 5th July and this is fully booked.
This year’s art exhibition will again be held in the Masonic Hall, Cromer Road (opposite the town’s main public car park and also ideally situated for the railway stations and bus stops).
It will be open to the public daily from Friday 18th to Tuesday 29th August between 10.30am and 5.30pm.
