Talk 'The Public Houses of Thorpe"  Nick Williams

St. Andrew's Centre, Thunder Lane

Thursday 16th. April 8 pm


The advertised talk on Thorpe Schools 1937-1997 due to be held on Thursday 16th April has been cancelled due to the spread of the coronavirus and the possible impact on people attending, the Thorpe History Group felt it would be inappropriate to go ahead.
It will be rescheduled for later this year or next year.
We hope to be able to hold the other events in our 2020 programme but that will depend upon what happens with the coronavirus. We will update our website as things evolve.
