Branch Notes


Another New Speaker on the Branch’s Community Outreach Team

Following her recent talk to the Branch on Hallowe’en Folklore, Beverley Rogers was invited to join the Branch’s Community Outreach speakers team. We’re very happy to say that she accepted.

Beverley will be a valuable addition to a very successful team of speakers.

An Honour for one of our colleagues

The Branch is very pleased to hear that Dr Anne Kelly, a Community Outreach speaker and tutor for the Branch, has been awarded the British Empire Medal. We send her our sincere congratulations.

The Royal Institution of South Wales will hold its annual Local History Book Fair at Swansea Museum between 10am and 4pm on Saturday 26 October 2019.
