It is with sadness that we have learnt of the passing of Dr David Painting on 10 October at Pen y Bryn Nursing and Residential Home, Sketty. In 2017, the Branch was pleased to award Branch Fellowship to Dr Painting for his contribution to the promotion of history in the community. Our commiserations go to his family.


The National Waterfront Museum, under the overall guidance of the National Museum of Wales, is allowing us to hold our post-Covid talks on its premises. At our monthly talks, social distancing and mask rules must be in place and attendance is by booking only.


Our branch journal Chronicle will be available at our events. The cost of a copy is:
