The Woolton Society


Talks arranged by the society

Talks will be held online for the foreseeable future, until the time comes when we can all meet up again safely in St Mary’s hall. .
It is hoped that many members will embrace the new normal, and log on to the online talks. This will also be a chance for the many long distance members to access the talks programme.
Members will be sent a link to access the talks a few days before each event. Non-members wishing to hear the talk will find membership forms on the website.

The talks the Woolton Society are presenting for 2021 begin in February with an afternoon talk when ken Pye will be presenting "The History of your Lost Village"This will be at 3:00pm on Thursday 18th February.
