The Lunchtime Talks provide an opportunity for the speaker to publicise what their group is doing to promote Corsham Area’s heritage and demonstrate the ability of the Friends to provide a platform for such local groups.
Ron Smith, Head of Guiding at the Lady Margaret Hungerford Almshouses & Free School, gave the first Talk on Tuesday 26 June. Ron’s confident and polished delivery, allied to his second-to-none knowledge of the subject, made for a thoroughly entertaining hour for the capacity audience.
The second in this series will take place on Tuesday 24 July, when Chris Coyle of the Wilts & Berks Canal Trust will describe the restoration work being undertaken between Chippenham and Lacock. The venue will again be Arnold House, as it will be for the third and fourth Talks, to be held 28 August and 25 September respectively.
Tickets for all Talks must be booked in advance from the TIC on 01249 714660. We will use an alternative town centre venue for the October and November Talks to avoid undermining sales of Cards for Good Causes in this pre-Christmas period.
