Upcoming Events

D-Day image

Thursday 6 June CANCELLED

Talk by Paula Kitching on the Normandy Landings

We are sorry to announce that due to illness, our speaker has had to cancel tonight’s talk. We hope to reschedule in the near future.


As we all know, the D-Day landings were part of the wider invasion of Europe in 1944, codenamed Operation Overlord. Paula will take us through the events that happened on this day, 75 years ago. It should be a talk of great local interest as the planning for Overlord took place at a military base in our own Bushy Park.

St Mary’s community hall,
7.30pm for 8.00pm start

Wednesday 2 October

Talk by Tim Redmond on Big Ben

Big Ben is one of the most iconic buildings in the world – it identifies the UK and democracy in the Western world. But there is a lot more to this tower than the beautiful external gothic architecture; and Tim will prove this to you.
