Temporary Suspension of Programme due to CoVid19

In view of the deepening crisis with coronavirus and the demographic of or members we have decided to postpone all meetings and visits of the Langford History Society until August when we will review the situation to see if we can meet again in September. We are sorry to take this step but think it is only sensible in the circumstances and we hope to reinstate the talks and visits missed this year in next year's programme.

MEETINGS ARE HELD IN THE CHURCH HALL, CHURCH STREET, LANGFORD, FROM 8 PM  ON THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH EXCEPT FOR JANUARY AND AUGUST WHEN THERE ARE NO MEETINGS AND JUNE AND JULY WHEN THERE COULD BE DIFFERENT TIMINGS AND/OR LOCATIONS FOR VISITS.
