Speakers' Meetings - 2018/19


Below are details of our speaker's meetings before Christmas and also some information about our New Year Lunch.  We will as usual be arranging speaker's meetings in February and March and details of this will follow later.  The dates of these will probably be Tuesday 12th February and Tuesday 12th March but those dates may be subject to change.


Tuesday 2nd October - David Rhodes on The Northern Forest and its links to the historic Knaresborough Forest


The meeting will take place at The Dower House Hotel, Bond End, Knaresborough, beginning at 7.30 pm.   The cost is £3 for members and £5 for non-members.  David will be telling us about the steps being taken to increase the area of forestry in the North of England with a natural forest to stretch from Liverpool to Hull. With our proximity to the historic Forest of Knaresborough this is bound to be of interest.


Tuesday 13 November Roger Hewitt, our Town Crier


Roger will tell us about curious visitors and the local gossip of our town. This is guaranteed to be entertaining and illuminating.  The cost is £3 for members and £5 for non-members.


On Wednesday 9 January we will have a New Year Lunch


As with this year's event, we will be holding this jointly with the Horticultural Society.  More details about this will follow.
