2020 AGM – MONDAY, 30 NOVEMBER

Due to Covid-19 our AGM was not held, as planned, in early July.

The meeting will be held in the Great Hall at King’s College on Monday, 30 November 2020.

Details are available in the May 2020 Newsletter.

(Please note that refreshments will be available from 4:45 pm – not 11:00 am as shown in the AGM insert)

 

2020 PUBLICATION

This year’s publication, the catalogue of London Parish Maps, is being published in August and will be despatched to members shortly afterwards.

The book is quite heavy. To save on postage many members, especially in London, will have their copies hand-delivered by volunteers so they may not receive them until September.

If you have not received your copy by the beginning of October, please contact the Publications Secretary, Simon Morris

We have also incorporated drop-down menus – scroll over each issue and you can examine the contents before opening it.  Try below.
