The good weather that we enjoyed in September and October continued into November and some of our hardier members are still using the main outdoor green at almost every roll-up session.

General subjects range from Historical Murder Most Foul, to the History of Lasham Airfield to a Classical Guitar recital – and having heard this one before, I can recommend it !! ...
