COVID-19 meant that our remaining programme for 2020 and for the first part of 2021 was effectively cancelled. We were able to move a number of the planned talks online, in the form of video presentations viewable by members under password protection.
Meetings have resumed, starting with the annual Sheringham History Group excursion, on Wednesday, August 25th. This was a two part event, with visits in both the morning and afternoon. Gunton Park Sawmill, the only water powered sawmill in North Norfolk, was visited in the morning. In the afternoon there was a visit to the Aylsham Roman Pottery Project. This provided the chance to view the excavations of the ARP with the chance to see work being undertaken on the diggings.
Further talks are planned as follows. All are subject to revision should national or speaker personal problems arise. Any changes will be communicated to members and posted on the website as soon as possible.
