A varied programme of talks has been lined up for this year's monthly meetings, with highlights including talks on the history of Norfolk's village signs and Ethel Gooch, Wymondham's First Lady.

On Wednesday, July 18 there will be an outing to Sutton Hoo, the famous Anglo-Saxon archaeological site near Woodbridge, for which bookings can be made January's meeting.
