At the AGM in March The Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary and committee members were re-elected for the year 2018-2019. The Chairman and Treasurer gave Reports and it was agreed to maintain subscriptions at £6. per annum. The speaker for the evening was Toni Mount on The Medieval Housewife.

The Historical Society has been given all Geoff Stanley's work on the weather in Shoreham dating back to the early 1960's. If there is anyone wishing to have access to these papers or to any of our other papers in the archives, do contact one of the committee.

In May Georgina & Mike Hopkins will be meeting with other representatives from the village to go round the village conservation area. The conservation officer from SDC & a Nick Chapple from Alan Baxter Ltd. will take them all round to discuss the value of the area. There will be an update on this later.

The Historical Society has received a book on Zoe Hart Dyke who started the silkworm production at Lullingstone Castle. If anyone is interested in getting a copy, contact the author Claire Weiss, her e mail address is claireweiss@hotmail.com. The cost if £10 + £2.50 postage. Hopefully we will be able to have her give an illustrated talk next year.
