Happy New Year! We have an interesting program of speakers for the coming season and hope to see as many of you as possible at the talks (bring your friends!). If you have difficulty getting to meetings on dark nights or could offer a lift to a fellow member please let us know and we can hopefully put people in touch.

Change of Meeting date: There has been a proposal that we change our monthly meeting date from the 3rd Thursday to the 2nd Thursday of the month. This would mean that our meetings would no longer clash with the Hooe History Society thus enabling people to attend both meetings if they want to. It would be good to hear your views about this important change so please contact John Cheshire (details below). We will vote on this issue at the AGM in April.
Windmill Hill Windmill: The opening dates for 2020 have been agreed and are on the website here. The mill will be open every Sunday from Easter (April 12th) until the end of August plus most bank holidays and the first and third Sundays in September and October.
Battle Museum of Local History:
If you are visiting Battle do not forget to include a visit to the Battle Museum of Local History. An excellent small museum, with free entry, you will be able to see amongst many interesting objects 'The Battle Axe' possibly the only example of a weapon used at the Battle of Hastings. Also included in the 1066 exhibition is a complete print of the Bayeux Tapestry by Charles Stothard, recreations of scenes from the Tapestry and a replica of the Alderney Tapestry which was completed in 2013.
