The group began in 1973 as an adult evening class sponsored by the Workers Education Association. It met in the Percival Guildhouse - Rugby's independent adult education centre. The evening classes lasted for about 6 years building up a small group of regulars.
When the formal classes stopped the regulars formed an independent group. The Group's principal activity is mutual support in furthering the research of its individual members. However we work as a group when a suitable project, such as the production of a book, has been identified.
The aim of the Group is to hold fortnightly meetings at two venues during the Autumn and Spring terms. These meetings are held at the Rugby Museum on the first Wednesday of each month and at the Merchants Inn in Little Church Street on the third Wednesday of each Month. These meetings will start at 2:00 pm. During the Summer term, visits to local places of interest will be arranged.
