GORING GAP LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
Founded in 1966, the Society is a lively group, with about 180 members. It organises a programme of monthly talks, together with outings, social events and guided walks. It holds occasional exhibitions and a regular advice ‘drop in’ session at Goring Library. The Society has a good collection of historical material in its archives and has published several booklets. The archives are open to the public by appointment. Members receive an annual journal containing a variety of short articles on topics of local interest. The Society’s oral history project aims to record the memories of local people for posterity.

The Transport History Group runs about ten outings a year to events or museums linked with boats, trains or planes and it issues a regular newsletter. Membership is included in the annual subscription to the Society.

Tue
Cafe Scientifique @ Cornerstone Arts
Dec 18 @ 7:30 pm

Talks start at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of every month at Cornerstone, Didcot.

There is no need to book – just turn up! However, please be aware – should visitor numbers exceed the capacity of the venue, some people may be denied entry, therefore, do come early to get a good seat!

Each month we have a different speaker, and would welcome your ideas for topics or speakers. The events are aimed at an audience aged 16+.

Whilst the event is free, we do ask for a voluntary donation to cover the cost of hiring the sound amplification that is required now our numbers have grown. Donations will not be regulated – we’re well aware that some will be able to pay, some will wish to overpay at some meetings and ignore the pot at others, and some may find it difficult to contribute in this way.

Didcot First has been organising the Didcot Café Scientifique since 2010. It is important to us because we have some really ground breaking and earth shattering science happening all around us: at Harwell, Rutherford, Culham, Milton Park, etc. and we want to help connect local people (scientists and complete novices) with what is happening in these places.
