21 August Hertford The Grenfell family of Panshanger HALS Lecture Series
6-9 September "Everywhere" Heritage Open Days Heritage Open Days

It should be noted that the list is far from complete and many societies are not mentioned because I couldn't find a suitable web page giving their programme. In some cases this may be that the contact information on the Hertfordshire County Council, in other cases because there were broken links, and in a few cases the information may have been buried somewhere on an unhelpful town/village web page which is more interested in carrying adverts, etc. If you want meetings to be included in future please make sure (1) you have a findable page including the future program (not the one for two years ago) and (2) that you let me know about it.
