OUR autumn programme of monthly talks opens with a slide-show by Howard Beard - an alphabetical tour of the Stroud district, illustrated from his huge collection of old photographs and postcards.

Non-members are always welcome and you don't need to be an expert, just have an interest in the area.

Join us on September 18, 2014 at 7.30pm.
