Kay Townsend. The history of the dodgems Mon 7th Nov 2016, 7.30pm
Langport and District History Society

We organise a programme of talks and visits, we mount exhibitions, and we do research into local history. We have a collection of digital photographs, and in 2013 we published a book of them, called Langport & Huish Episcopi through time, which is available from our Secretary. We also publish an annual compilation of articles of local history interest called Level Talk, which is free to members.

Our talks
Visiting speakers are invited to give illustrated talks on subjects of historical interest, either about the local area, or more generally.
Our talks are held in Langport Library, Whatley, Langport. They start at 7.30 pm on the first Monday in the month, except if that is a Bank Holiday, when we meet a week later, and July and August when we don't meet.
Refreshments are available at the end of each talk, which gives time to chat informally over a cup of tea or coffee with the speaker and other members. Talks are free to members. Non-members are very welcome, £2.00 per talk.

Since the 1930s in the UK we've lost 97% of our wildflower meadows, and with them our critical pollinators such as bees and butterflies. To help reverse this decline, and to support the creation of a beautiful expanse of meadow to support Somerset's bees and butterflies, http://www.somersetwildlife.org/Somerset_Wildlife_Trust_Launch_Campaign_to_Create_a_Buzz_for_Pollin...
