Whitchurch and Goring Heath History Society

OUR lecture season continues on Thursday evenings at Goring Heath parish hall.

On April 18 we will have Tom Fort to speak about the survival of the English village in the past and into the future.

After retiring early from a career at the BBC, Mr Fort has written a number of well-received books on subjects including lawns, eels, the Channel shore and the A303.

Our speaker on May 16 will be Professor Richard Fortey who purchased a small part of Lambridge Wood, near Henley, and observed there the passing of the seasons and investigated its geology and ecology.

However, he does much more than that as he uncovers the history of the area and his book, The Wood for the Trees, is a much-admired study of man and the natural world.

We welcome non-members, who pay £3 per evening, which includes coffee and biscuits. Coffee is served from 7.30pm.

Membership costs just £12 a year, a bargain.
