AGM and “Little-Known Warwickshire” Part 2 by Alan Winterburn

Friday 9th March 2018, 7.30 pm, Lighthorne Village Hall

Alan Winterburn gave us the first part of his slide show on “Little-Known Warwickshire” in November 2016 and it was so well received by the members present that we have asked him to return and give us the second part of his presentation. Alan is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Warwickshire and his illustrated talk will be riveting, if it is of the same standard as the the first part. The AGM starts at 7.30 pm and the talk starts at 8 pm.
