8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
We will be restarting our talks programme on Monday 14 September. However, because of the continuing Covid-19 restrictions, our first meeting, which will include our rescheduled AGM, will take place virtually via Zoom, rather than physically at Duke Street Church. Members will find a Zoom meeting code on the back page of the September newsletter.
After the AGM, Simon Fowler will give a talk on “Local ives: Richmond residents remembered”. With photographs and other illustrations, Simon will recount some of the stories of some of the remarkable people – some famous, some forgotten – who have lived in Richmond and the local area.
Simon Fowler is a professional writer, researcher and tutor specialising in the two world wars and the 20th century. He lives in Kew, where he used to work at The National Archives. Simon has been a member of the Richmond Local History Society since it was set up and is now its Vice-Chair. He is the author of the Society’s book Richmond at War 1939-1945 and helped edit
the 2019 edition of The Streets of Richmond and Kew.
