Our next meeting at the Jubilee Hall, Horton Road, Horton Kirby is a talk by Mary Smith (former Head of Maidstone Grammar School for Girls) called “A Schoolgirl’s War”, explaining how the school coped during WW2, charmingly illustrated with watercolours by the then art teacher Helen Keen. The school’s air raid shelter was found a few years ago and is now open for schools to visit and see what it was like having lessons in a shelter.
Our calendar for the rest of the year is as follows:
16th May Martin Heard – Artists of World War One
11th July Steve Hookins – Bits that Don’t Fit
12th Sept Melanie Gibson-Barton – Madness, Murder, Mayhem – The Belgian Royal Family
14th Nov AGM, followed by a short talk, then our Cheese & Wine social event
Visitors are always welcome at our meetings
