MALPAS FIELD CLUB

The next meeting of Malpas Field Club will be on Wednesday 8th November (7.45 pm) at Malpas High Street Church SY14 8PR.

The speaker will be Roger Atkinson OBE from Huntington.

Roger, a member of the Road Transport History Association, has a particular interest in road passenger transport and has prepared an illustrated talk especially for the Field Club.

Entitled 'Fares, please! The social history of the motor bus', Roger's talk will look at the evolution of public services from the days of horse-drawn transport, through the heyday of motor bus services in the 1930s and 1940s, into their gradual decline in the face of increasing private car ownership.

To receive a copy of the current Field Club programme, by post or email, or for any other information about activities and membership, please contact David Hayns (secretary) on (01948) 860486 david@hayns.com
