CONGRESBURY HISTORY GROUP
 CONGRESBURY HISTORY GROUP Autumn  Programme 2017 (September to December)
 Wednesday 20 September  A walk along Hadrian’s Wall  -  In 2013 well known local author Ben Kane and two fellow writers undertook this walk dressed in full Roman kit, to raise funds for charity. A light, humorous talk and slide show, with some history. Wednesday 18 October My Family and Jack the Ripper -  We are pleased to welcome back Pat Hase who will entertain us  with a talk on the social history of the 19 th   century, which compares the lives of two women, one in Bristol and the other in London – and we will find out all about Pat’s possible connection to the notorious serial killer!  This talk will be preceded by a short AGM. Wednesday 15 November The Lost Cottages of Cheddar Gorge - This area has long attracted artists and photographers who have left us with a remarkable record of the community living around Gough’s Caves during the 19 th  and early 20 th   centuries.  Although most of this has now gone, tonight’s talk by Sue Shaw will help bring it back to life, through the many images captured by those early cameras. Wednesday 13 December Christmas Dinner at Mendip Spring Golf and Country Club – We hope you can join us for this celebration meal.
