The Local History Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday morning each month upstairs at Age Concern in Bradbury House on Beaumont Street at 10.00 for coffee - the meetings begins at 10.30.
Our programme is made up of visiting speakers, talks from our own members who have researched a particular area of interest and visits to local sites of historical significance.
There is a wealth of history in this area and we have had great help from the staff of the Local History section in Crown Street Library.
2019 Programme of Talks and Visits
