Start of our new programme
As the risks from Covid appear to be receding we have made a tentative start to a new programme of events. It is probably needless to say but this programme may need to change if circumstances deteriorate.
We start off in September together with Penybont History Society when Lloyd Lewis will give us a talk on The People who left Radnorshire for America.
Sadly none on the Mayflower, but Lloyd will explain the Radnorshire way of crossing the Atlantic, and what became of the families afterwards. This is at Penybont Community Centre [on the A44, parking at the rear] on Friday September 17th at 7pm. There will follow a trip to the Pales Quaker Meeting House in Llandegley [park at the Quarry] on the Sunday 19th September, 2pm with tea and a look around the displays at the Thomas Shop in Penybont.
On Friday October 8th 7pm we are having a talk from Philip Hume at New Radnor Village Hall entitled The King’s Writ does not run here: The Welsh Marcher Lordships.
Philip is also leading our day outing on the Saturday October 9th which is a day trip to Montgomery to see the Castle, and a talk and look at the architecture and history of the town with local historians visiting the Museum. 11 am at the castle picnic or arrange your own lunch, tea together somewhere. Own transport.
I want to hold a Coffee Morning and Book Sale. We have been donated a large number of history, archaeology and general books, and a few local ones for us to sell to provide funds for our library and archive. Suggestions for a venue please
The AGM will be on Saturday November 13th at 2pm in the Metropole in Llandrindod when we shall all have the opportunity to meet our new President and hear about our exciting project to produce a new history of Radnorshire.
Our delayed Society Anniversary dinner is rescheduled for Friday December 3rd at 6.30pm the Metropole.
Fuller details of the last 2 and the list of the Winter Walks will be sent out with your AGM papers.
Library now open
We are very pleased to announce that the Library and Archive are now open. There are still Covid restrictions in force so masks must still be worn within and social distancing enforced. In order to control distancing within the limited space available, we ask anyone wishing to visit the Dolmynach house to contact the librarian, Brian Matthews beforehand.
