Past Events


Our first gathering for 2016 was the Spring Lecture Meeting  on Saturday 19th March.  We welcomed Mr Richard Thomas, CMG who spoke about “A time of change - Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria before and after 1989". Richard was a career diplomat from 1961 to 1998 and served as British Ambassador to Bulgaria for the period of 1989 – 1994, having earlier served as Counsellor and Charge d’Affaires in Prague. As usual the talk was followed by tea and cakes.

We enjoyed another friendly Summer Outing on Monday 4th July.  We started with lunch at the New Inn Hotel in Lechlade, before moving on to Fairford, for a guided tour of the beautiful church.


Our Autumn Lecture Meeting was held at Oxford High School on Saturday 29th October.  After a brief AGM we were entertained and informed by a talk on "Women in Victorian Oxford", given by Rev'd Professor William Whyte, Tutorial Fellow in History & Vice President at St John’s College, Oxford.
