About Us

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.

When the Covid problems allow, the aim of the Group is to meet at 2pm on Wednesday afternoons during the Autumn and Spring terms. Until these face to face venues can be arranged, we are holding video conference meetings using the Zoom platform. During the Summer term, visits to local places of interest are arranged.
