WELCOME TO

WINCHESTER CATHOLIC HISTORY SOCIETY

The aim of our Society is

‘to develop and foster an interest in, and an appreciation of history, especially in Catholic, local and English history’.

 

We achieve this by holding monthly talks by speakers who are experts in their field. We aim to cover a wide range of topics each season. In addition, we arrange at least one trip per season to a place of historical interest.

 

We look forward to welcoming our members, visitors and speakers to in-person meetings from October 2021. 

 

Your safety is our highest priority.

We strongly encourage members and visitors to wear face masks (unless medically exempt) on entry to and when moving around the Parish Centre. 

Hand sanitiser will be provided at the ‘sign-in’ desks and we will be asking attendees to sanitise their hands before using the pens provided. 

 

Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms relating to Covid-19.
