At our meeting on Wednesday 12 June 2019, Barry Wall gave us a talk about the street scene in Sudbury in the 1730’s, as the schoolboy Thomas Gainsborough would have experienced it while living at the family home that is now Gainsborough’s House, on Gainsborough Street, and before he moved to London.
Barry also spoke about the presentation of the 2 volumes of Hugh Belsey’s books on Gainsborough to Sudbury Library the previous day, on behalf of the Sudbury History Society. He read the press release to us.
Chairman Graeme Pulham gave details of outings planned for this year – see the Outings page.
The annual “Summer Bash” on Wednesday 14 August will be at Shrubs Farm, Lamarsh as before. The cost is £3 and members are asked to sign up to bring an item of food.
