Dear All


Following the fascinating talk by Andy Linklater on Doggerland events that led to the separation of what is now the UK from Europe (which many have been referred to as the first Brexit!), the April meeting was a film about the first phase of 'Big Dig' at Whitefriars in Canterbury which lasted for several months in 2001-02. We were lucky to have member David Kincaid at the meeting. David was involved in the dig and was able to answer questions from members and friends.

We are hoping to have one of our walks on Monday 13th May, when as always - Andy (yes, him again) will be taking us round Bishopsbourne starting at the church - which the churchwarden has kindly offered to open up specially for us - and ending up near The Mermaid! We aim to start at 7.00pm. As always with our walks, we are weather dependent, but let's hope spring has fully sprung by then.

On Monday 24th June at Barham Village Hall we are scheduled to have the 'Passport' talk we had to postpone last year and in July we are hoping to have another of our Bat and Trap evenings.
