St. Mary’s Island History Group are scheduled to meet on Monday 17th September at 7.30 pm at St. Mary’s Island Community Centre, Island Way West, ME3 3EP. Visitors are welcome at a cost of £2.
Annual subscriptions to the Group remain the same at £10 but they are now asking for £1 per person for refreshments to help balance the books so to speak.
Their guest speaker for this meeting will be Peter Haddock who will be armed with a wealth of Chatham Dockyard stories. He was a Dockyard Police Officer and dog handler during the 1960s.
The Group has an interesting new tale to tell of a local ship to share with members and visitors.
