New Picture

Stokes Bay and Pier




The picture comes from a book published in 1947 so I am assuming that the picture is prewar probably the Review of the Fleet 1937.

2020
After safety discussions with the venue management we have unfortunateley had to change our Society re-start date. This means there will be no further meetings this year and our first meeting will hopefully be in January 2021


 FOR THE TIME BEING THERE WILL BE NO RAFFLE, NO REFRESHMENTS AND NO MID-EVENING BREAK SO WE CAN HAVE TIME TO SANITISE THE SEATING AFTERWARDS. 

Please note the Winter Series has been 
re-scheduled to the Autumn.
