The Burnham History Society holds meetings once a month (except July and August), at which there is a guest speaker. Non-members are very welcome to attend these meetings. In June, we usually arrange an outing to a local place of interest.
 

Cost (at the door):   Members: 1.50   Non-members: 2.00 including refreshments

 

   Meetings start at 7:30pm except for November, January and February when we meet at 2.30pm, and  afterwards refreshments, coffee or tea with biscuits will be served and we inevitably have a chat following the talk
