Next Wednesday evening talk

On Wed 8th May we will have the next in our popular series of local history talks. Dr David Carr (retd.) will speak about The History of Combe Down Surgery.

Many of you will remember Dr Carr’s amusing account at our Christmas Wassail of incidents occurring during his long period as a Combe Down Doctor. One Wednesday, David will talk about the Surgery building’s heritage, and the roles of the doctors who kept our village healthy.

The talk will take place as usual in the Combe Down Primary School Hall in Summer Lane, BA2 5JX. The talk itself starts at 7.30pm, and the doors are open from 7.00pm. CDHS Members £2. Non-members are very welcome at the talk; entrance is £4. All tickets on the door.
