Our December meeting is our annual Christmas Party and Quiz Night for members and their guests. Please bring your own drinks and seasonal nibbles.
Teams of up to four people are welcome, as are individual quizzers who will be teamed up on the night.
The fun starts on Wednesday, December 6th at 7.30pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon!
Our first meeting in 2018 is on Wednesday, January 17th, when Dr Chris Scott is giving a talk on ‘Penruddock’s Rising (1655)’.
Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors. Why not join us? Membership is still only £10 a year. For details of the 2017-18 programme of talks and events, click here.
We can offer talks to interested groups on the village and its history, on the Cauldrons and on Chiseldon Camp. Please get in touch via the website, email or phone for more details.
Many thanks to Peter Derbyshire and Mac Lawson of Wroughton who have renewed the handle on the bier in the Chiseldon Museum, and made a splendid job of it!
