This year the history group are studying the twentieth century. We remember some of it - our grandmas remember a lot more.
We plan to cover the main events, world wide which will include the Boer War, the Russian Revolution, and the Cold War. Also, how about Germany between the wars, American prohibition, the Suez Crisis, and much more. Not forgetting landing on the moon.
We can take a look at people who played such a large part - Lloyd George, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung.
And then there are the massive changes that happened in that century - television, computers, mobile phones. All of these have made us what we are. It's a wonderful century.
We meet at Monk Bretton Methodist Church on the second and fourth Monday of each month, at 10 am.
