The last event in this year's programme was a fascinating talk about Joan of Arc by Joy Bounds, pictured left. A full report by Andy Sheppard can be found on the 'Joan of Arc' tab above. It includes some interesting new information about a ring belonging to Joan that was only discovered a year or so ago.
The next event will be at 7.30 in the Parish Room on 20th September, when Sarah Doig, a local writer, researcher and brilliant speaker on local and general history, will take us through her own A-Z of Curious Suffolk. As described by Amazon:
The book romps through Suffolk’s rolling countryside and along its shingled coastline, unearthing the curious along the way. Sandwiched between ecclesiastical penances handed to adulterers and fornicators, and the odd porcelain incendiary bombs commemorating the Zeppelin raids, is an alphabetical cornucopia of strange, spooky and mysterious facts about the county.
Its going to be great, so make a note in your diary.
