HGS Afternoon Family History Group meets for Talks and Visits to Inspire and Help you with your Research
The Afternoon Group has been established to cater for HGS members and potential new members who would prefer to meet in the afternoon as an alternative to an evening meeting.
Run by Jane Painter & Chris Pavey, the Afternoon Group meets eight times a year: March – June and September – December.
Meetings are held from 2pm-4pm in the UPPER room of Wallington Village Hall, Broadcut, Fareham on the THIRD Wednesday of the month.
The format is the same as the evening groups: either a family history speaker or a members’ afternoon, with perhaps an additional summer walk around a local area of interest and a Christmas event.
We look forward to seeing you!
Jane and Chris
*Please note that there are no changes to the Fareham Group: this is an ADDITIONAL group.
