Whitchurch and Goring Heath History Society

WE will be delighted to welcome back Clive Williams on Thursday, March 21. This time he will be speaking about his new book, You’ll be a Teacher Over My Dead Body, a frank and funny account of his legal career at Berkshire County Council.

Outrageous antics of judges and other public figures are recounted along with more serious issues encountered in local government, such as the 1974 reorganisation.

The following meeting will be on April 18 when Tom Fort, author of The Village News, will speak about the survival of the English village in past times and in the future.

Tom had a career in local journalism and BBC radio news before he took early retirement to write his many books on subjects such as lawns, eels, the Channel shore and the A303.

Meetings take place at the Goring Heath parish hall at Whitchurch Hill at 8pm (coffee from 7.30pm). Non-members are welcome at a cost of £3 to include coffee and biscuits.
