Society Events

We host a varied and regular flow of events throughout the year. These events are a mixture of evening presentations and social events, local outdoor projects, walks and visits further afield to places of interest. If you know of new topics or fresh approaches to events, visits and projects, the Committee would like to hear from you. Reports on those events can be found using this link.

In planning:-

A visit to Maidstone Grammar School's Second World War tunnel/shelter, once used as class-rooms during air raid alerts. This arose out of one of the most fascinating presentations by a visiting speaker who shared the wartime story of the school through the stories and art of children and art teacher.
