Autumn 2020

In the current circumstances and in line with many similar organisations, Bramcote History Group has decided that it cannot go ahead with its programme of talks for the autumn of 2020. We hope that we will be able to resume our meetings in 2021 and the planned presentations can be viewed on the programme page of this website.

Members have been sent details of our reasons for this decision and proposals for activities that might be undertaken whilst meetings in our usual venue cannot take place. Membership fees donated for the year October 2019 – 2020 will now extend until October 2021.
