Branch Notes

RISW Local History Book Fair

On Saturday 27 October 2018, the Branch had a table at the Royal Institution of South Wales’s Local History Book Fair.

The Book Fair has always been popular in past years and once again proved to be at the latest event.

The HA table had many callers. Thank you to all who showed an interest in the Branch.

The branch’s Outreach Speakers have been very busy this year, with bookings almost doubling last year’s number (last year = 83).

This year, we have received 164 invitations to speak to community groups, and we have given 130 of those talks so far. For next year, we have already received 50 invitations, and they’re still coming in.

If you’d like us to talk to your group, contact us on 07971 665594.
