Looking ahead to our plans for the rest of 2020

Reluctantly, the History Group committee decided this year’s AGM should be cancelled on public health grounds, especially considering the numbers we pack into our relatively confined Village Institute. However, we are determined that our plans for the year ahead will continue and the following information is to put you all in the picture.

Renewal of Membership 2020/21

Renewal can be made at Galleon Stores, Galmpton – Households £8, Individuals £5. On payment of membership, you will be provided with the new 2020/21 programme.

Or, you may make your renewal at any of this year’s Spring/Summer events.

The committee as a whole wish all our membership a safe time to come throughout 2020.
