Why not come along and attend our next Lecture


There isn't a Lecture during the month of December, so the next Lecture is arranged for Monday 20th January 2020 at The Whitby Coliseum, starting at 2 pm.

The speaker is George Layfield and he will be speaking on "Balancing conservation with Modern Life".

We hope that you will be able to come along and enjoy the evening.
