WTHSoc – Meetings and visits suspended until 25 Sep 2020

Having studied the recent information from the Chief Medical Officer and from the Government website regarding the outbreak of Covid-19 your committee have decided it would be a sensible and indeed socially responsible thing to do to cancel all forthcoming meetings up to the usual summer break in June. I will be contacting all our speakers due to attend meetings up to that date in order to postpone their visit with the hope they will agree to come along to a future meeting.

Under normal circumstances, the last meeting of our year is held in June at which we hold the AGM. I propose changing this, on this occasion, to the first meeting of our new year on Friday 25th September hoping all will be well by then. We will keep you informed nearer the time. Unfortunately, we also feel it necessary to cancel the proposed group visit to the Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway.

I wish you a safe and healthy summer and hope to see you all in September.

Tony Irvine

Chairman.

Country of Larks: A Chiltern Journey

posted 28 Apr 2019, 08:25 by Adrian Randall   [ updated 2 Jun 2019, 09:32 ]

Travel writer and journalist Gail Simmons follows in the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson as she walks from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire to Tring in Hertfordshire via Great Missenden and Wendover, tracing not only the changes in the landscape of the last 150 years but also those yet to come with the imminent arrival of the controversial HS2, the high-speed railway from London to Birmingham. Just as Stevenson spoke to people he met along the way, Simmons encounters those whose lives will be affected by HS2: a tenant farmer, a retired businessman-turned-campaigner, a landscape historian and a conservationist.
