HISTORY

The purpose of this group will be to explore History in the wider context; but complementary to the work of the Dawlish Local History Group.

Normally meetings will be held at 6, Town Mills, Church Street, Dawlish, EX7 9QP on the third Thursday of each month, from 2 to 4 PM.

It is up to members of the group, and U3A members who wish to join the group to suggest topics of interest, or places to visit; and all suggestions will be welcomed. Recent topics have looked at aspects of Political, Military & Social History, from 17th Century to the present day.

Few can have noticed that we live in momentous times: both at Home and Abroad – truly History in the making. Yet the Dawlish U3A History Group nearly died as soon as it began – from apathy. Thankfully, viability was ensured by no fewer than five new members of the U3A all joining the group. There is still room for more. We are not looking for experts, just people with enthusiasm and enquiring minds. Come and join us.

New members are welcome, but numbers are limited, so please get in contact first.
