People, places and events in the parish's history

LHS Talk Wednesday 29 November 2023

For our second meeting of 2023, we have a talk on pandemics through history and their impact on Compton & Shawford.

We are fortunate to have as our speaker Dr. Peter Neyroud of this parish.

Peter has made an extensive study of pandemics and literally wrote the book on Policing the Covid pandemic.

Full details in the flyer reproduced below.
