The Lavenham Society will be holding its annual general meeting in The Guildhall next month.

It is to take place on Tuesday, February 20, at 7pm, and features a talk by Robyn Lloyd Hughes entitled “The Friendly Invasion - Bringing in the Bombs”.

He was an officer in the Territorial Army for over 40 yars and is chairman of the Lavenham and District branch of the Royal British Legion.

His talk will centre on the logistical effort in creating and proving the facilities, bombs, ammunition, fuel and other stores and supplies to support the 8th Air Force in the region during the Second World War.

The agenda for the meeting includes the chairman’s and treasurer’s reports, election of members to the executive, future events planned throughout the year and the date of the 2019 AGM.

Entrance is free and is open to everyone interested in the society.
