We are still on the lookout for Garden City enthusiasts to come and help us dig and delve a bit further in order to put together the full picture of the way the town came into being and then grew and developed.

London is a collection of villages. When you live in one of them with its quiet back streets and its one street of stores and shops, like those of any other village, it is not possible for you to realise that you are in the heart of the greatest city in the world.’  Mark Twain'

Talks on a variety of specialised subjects.

Health for the health less: voluntary work in India.

**** NOTE OUR NEW VENUE ****

Meetings are now held at the Jackman's Community Centre, Letchworth, SG6 2NL

on the first Tuesday of each month. 

We are interested in churches and other places of worship – their architecture, monuments, art and history – and the people who have been associated with them over the years.

We generally arrange guided tours of interesting buildings during spring, summer and autumn, and a programme of talks in winter.

Everyone is welcome at all our events; although we don't worship together there is always time during our visits for those who would like some quiet reflection.

 

 

We visit local meadows and nature reserves to enjoy the amazing variety of plants, birds, butterflies and flowers.

Each willing member leads a visit to a wood, meadow or nature reserve, followed by refreshments in a pub or tea room.

Hopefully we’ll be inspired by our visit to Jordan’s Mill on 28 June.
Any July visits will be last minute, pop-up affairs, possibly to Clophill or Ashwell Quarry, keeping an eye on our capricious weather
