Christmas Party

The meeting room was decorated in festive style for the Wargrave Local History Society's Christmas Party in December. The members were warmed with traditional mulled wine, apple and blackberry pies and mince pies, all home-made by member Wendy Smith. The evening also included a nostalgic look back at some of the Society's own history. The pictures shown recalled each of the Society's summer visits made in the 21st century, with a chance to spot friends, changing fashions - and afternoon cream teas!

The next meeting will be on Tuesday, January 10th, when Dan Wood will recount some of his Experiences of Times on the River Thames, and then on Tuesday, February 14th Graham Jones will tell us about The Lambourn Valley Railway which had a special kind of traffic from the start - and a different special kind of traffic at the end of its life. That will be followed on Tuesday March 14th by the Society's Annual General Meeting.
