Next Meeting: Tuesday November 12th – Speaker is Dr. Sam Stevens Lecturer, Researcher and Film-maker with a talk on the 1930s Workers’ Film and Photo League, whose Secretary was the Rev. Hugh Cuthbertson (vicar of Tilty 1940-1961). The presentation will feature film-clips from the 1930s, including some key events of the time (like the Hunger March), and some taken in local places – Morris dancers at Thaxted, for example. The films are silent, but will be accompanied by authentic gramophone music of the period.
The Group was established in December 2011. We are based in Tilty, in north west Essex, but our members come from several neighbouring villages, and from further afield. Our principal aim is ‘to acknowledge and encourage people’s interest in the archaeology and local history of Tilty and the surrounding area’.
Regular meetings are held in the Upstairs Room of the Three Horseshoes in Duton Hill. These meetings are open to members and non-members, but there is a small fee for non-members. We usually meet on the second Tuesday of the month – but not every month – and the meetings start at 7.45 for 8.00 p.m.
For 2019, our regular meetings will be on: 8th January (AGM), 12th March, 14th May, 9th July, 10th September and 12th November
The Group elects a Committee and Voluntary Officers at the AGM each year – current members are: Jane and Martin Pedley (Joint Presidents), Darren Stone (Chairman), Maggie Stevens (Secretary), Rebecca Fowell (Treasurer), and Alf Wright.
