APPEAL FOR COMMITTEE MEMBERS - Places on the Committee will become vacant at the History Group’s AGM in April next year, as a result of the retirement of three Members who have served for 20 years or longer. The History Group, founded 26 years ago, is a thriving organisation with comprehensive Archives - a valuable village asset. It would be sad if it had to close for the lack of Committee Members. Committee Members need not necessarily reside in Walberswick as long as they are prepared to come to Meetings (negotiated).

Even if you are not yet a Member, but are interested in joining, and perhaps becoming part of the Committee, please contact the Secretary by email (alan.walpole@hotmail.co.uk) or by telephone (01502 724763) or the "Acting" Secretary by email (patlancaster@btinternet.com) or by telephone (01502 724268) for more information.
