A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Area: Herefordshire

'Bromyard and District Local History Society is based in Bromyard, Herefordshire, England, and was founded in 1966. It exists to foster interest, enjoyment, research and publication in the field of our local history. We offer members a varied programme of events, at least monthly, throughout the year. These are mainly illustrated lectures in the winter and guided outings in the summer, but also include many social occasions.'

Member of the Amphibian and Reptile Groups of the UK Grouping

'We are the County Association for beekeeping in Herefordshire, affiliated to the British Beekeepers’ Association and the Midland and South-Western Counties Convention of Beekeepers. We are also affiliated to the National Honey Show and the Bee Diseases Insurance Ltd. We have a long history of helping local beekeepers. New exotic and indigenous pests and diseases seem to keep appearing and advice about how to deal with them is always useful. We have three LANs (Local Activity Network groups) which meet during the active beekeeping season at various apiaries. Each group has a local expert tutor – a great way for beginners to learn and to get help with problems. We have indoor meetings in the winter, bee safaris and an annual course for beginners.'

Founded 1950:: 'We welcome everyone, from experts to novices and all who care about the future of birdlife in the County. Whether you are a professional ornithologist, amateur birdwatcher or a complete beginner, we value your support and encourage you to participate in Club activities. We organise field meetings to birding sites in Herefordshire and beyond, and an annual programme of talks on a wide range of subjects by local and national experts.'

'Meets on a weekly basis every Wednesday evening (occasionally Mondays) between the months of September and May.'

Category Booksellers

'Rossiter Books is a family run business that prides itself on being at the centre of the community. We have bookshops in Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye and Leominster. At Rossiter Books you can expect a friendly welcome, expert advice on books and an extremely high level of customer service. We also hold regularly author events and, outside of pandemics, run a regular monthly book group from each shop.'

'The Woolhope Club is the society for people of an enquiring mind interested in the county of Herefordshire, though many of its members live outside the county and its yearly journal (the Transactions) can be found in libraries across the world. The Club’s interests include archaeology, geology, history and natural history. Most of its activities are based in Herefordshire and the Marches and this is reflected in the topics covered in our journals, but some expeditions are made further afield, occasionally outside the UK. Members come together for lectures in Hereford during the winter months and go on excursions during the summer. The Club often visits places not accessible to the general public.'
