At Venue 35 – the Memorial Hall Meeting Room – on Tuesday 29th October 2019 at 7:30 pm
Present: Chairman Robin Boucher and 9 members
Robin welcomed our three visitors.
Minutes of the previous (September) meeting were approved and signed.
Matters arising: The film show was well attended and if any member wishes to see the Thomas Pestell film, Robin has a DVD which can be borrowed.
The main event of the evening was a talk by Sue on Medieval Packington. Sue has done extensive research, which included visits to the National Archives in Kew.
During early times until the Dissolution of the Monasteries, Packington was in the patronage of Coventry Priory, which was founded by Leofric in 1043.
Sue showed members maps of the layout of the village, and also the Packington extent of 1412.
After questions and answers by Sue, Robin thanked her on behalf of members for a most interesting and informative evening.
The meeting closed at 9.35pm.
The next meeting is on Tuesday 26th November at 7.30pm.
