Sydenham History Group

After more than two years it was with great joy that Sydenham History Group members met together face to face in February for the first meeting of 2022. The talk was given by Nigel Briggs on the subject of St Mary’s Allotments. The next meeting was on Tuesday 12th April with Allan Jennings presenting “Just Another Load of Bricks”. Allan had, as always, excellent photos of old Leamington to illustrate his interesting talk. On 2nd June as part of celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Centre. we heard from Mary Briggs and Kate Cliffe about how the SYDNI Centre came into being and what is happening now.

We are often asked why our meetings are not at regular times eg monthly. This is because the SYDNI Centre is used by many different groups who meet weekly in term time so we meet during school holidays when there is availability. It’s good to know the Centre is so well used, especially after being closed for some months during the pandemic.

Our programme is below so do consider coming along to our meetings where you will receive a warm welcome.
