Annual General Meeting

This year the AGM will be held on Wednesday 22nd May at 7.30pm in the Museum. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served from 7pm. We are delighted to say that Tony Hadland has agreed to speak after the business meeting. Many of you will already know Tony who was for some time Manager of the Museum. His subject this time will be ‘Who were the Hildesleys?’ He says that anyone researching local history in southern Oxfordshire or west Berkshire is likely to come across occasional mentions of the Hildesley family. In this talk, he will trace their story from the time of Henry VIII until the main line died out in the 18th century.
