Annual General Meeting

Wargrave Local History Society's March meeting began with the AGM, when the past year was reviewed, the coming year's committee elected, and details of the 2014-15 programme given.

Following the formal part of the meeting, presentations by Philip Smith on the history of the Woodclyffe Allotments and by Geoff Briggs on the Silver family of Wargrave and Magic Lanterns were shown, followed by a video of the recent flooding of the Rivers Thames and Loddon, by kind permission of the Henley Standard.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday, April 8th, when we will welcome Elizabeth Hazeldine to speak about Fillets Court and the Families who Passed Through the Estate - telling us about the history of Fillets Court at Henley, which was a 14th century house where Phyllis Court is now, and then on Tuesday May 13, Caroline Stanford will give an illustrated talk on The Work of the Landmark Trust, which is based at White Waltham.
