Membership Notice

The History Society now needs your help in determining our future development.

To some extent we have all been in a state of uncertainty with Covid determining so much of how we carry out group activities etc.

However, some two years on from the onset of the pandemic we do now look to be approaching a time when such groups meetings, talks etc. can once again safely take place.

Your intentions with regards to future membership are now crucial in determining how the History Society should proceed.

It is proposed that membership should commence again on March 1st this year.

Could we ask you to indicate if you intend to once again enrol as a member of the Dilton Marsh Local History Society.

Annual membership costs £7 and if taken at the talk the admission fee would be waved.

Many thanks
Graham Noble (Treasurer)

The talk by “The Commonwealth War Graves Commission” on Friday 18th February has had to be postponed.

We do expect the talk on “The Wiltshire White Horses“ to take place on Friday 25th March.
