What's Happening this Autumn? Latest Friends' Talks and Trips

The AGM will be held between 6.30-7.30pm on the 7th of November, and then there will be a talk at 8pm.

I have updated the talks and trips listing, to save you clicking, they are as follows:
26.9.14 Steve Marshall talking about 'Avebury Waterscape', springs, rivers & the Avebury monuments
7.11.14 at 8pm after the AGM, Dr Mike Pringle will be talking about 'Remembering WW1', with particular emphasis on the home front. What was happening at home when men went off to fight?
28.11.14 Bryn Walters talking about Roman Towns in Wiltshire

23.9.14 Marlborough College meeting at 10.30am outside the church at the Marlborough College end of the High Street.
Numbers are limited so please ring Paul Ricketts on 01672 539688 to secure a place.
The blog post on the 24th March gives an idea of what to expect.

20.10.14 Devizes Museum 2pm meet there's an hour's talk by David Dawson on arrival and then a look around the newly refurbished museum.

Also SM&AG have these 3 talks in October:
18.10.14 7.30pm Professor Smiles will talk about Turner in the West Country, there is a charge of £3.50 for Friends for this talk.
24.10.14 7pm Back to Nature- Landscape and Modern British art-this talk costs £4.50 and will be given by Sophie Cummings
31.10.14 7pm a Contemporary Arts Society talk, this is a discussion between Sophie Cummings and Marcus Quaife and is free of charge.

 You may also be interested in the fact that Mike Yates' book 'Ralph Bates: Swindon's 'unknown author' is now available in Pen and Paper, and so is Mike Pringle's book 'Swindon Remembering 1914-18.

They are both excellent.
