Report -

Our April meeting was a slide show and presentation by Nick Mc Camley entitled “Underground worlds of Corsham".

This was a very well attended meeting and Nicks knowledge of what went on beneath Corsham during WW2 and the Cold war period held the audience spellbound.

We hope to have Nick back some when in the future for another lecture.
