It will be noted that two speakers have been arranged to talk on subjects, relating to Wells Cathedral. It was felt that we should do this in order to give an indication of the tremendous works being carried out in our Cathedral Church,

CHURCH INTENSIVE STUDY PROJECT

It is proposed that we, as a Society, carry out an intensive study of one particular church in our area. This study would cover the architectural history, monuments, gravestone and tomb positions and their inscriptions, stained glass, furnishings, plate, and records, etc.

Anyone willing to participate in this Project please contact the Secretary.

A SOCIETY LIBRARY

The following volumes of the Proceedings of the Somersetshire Archaeological and Natural History Society are available for loan to members:

Vols LXXVII – LXXIX, 1931 – 1933;
Vols LXXXI – LXXXIV, 1935 – 1938;
Vols LXXVI – LXXXVII, 1940 – 1941;
Vols XCVIII – 112, 1953 – 1968;
Vols, 114 – 121, 1970 – 1977.

Please apply to the Society’s Honorary Librarian, Mrs Pat Knight at meetings, or at 24 Nash Lane, Yeovil (Tel. Yeovil 25434).

Using the above volumes as a nucleus, it is hoped to form a small library for the Society on subjects of interest to members, i.e. local history, archaeology, and subjects of general interest. As the library will rely mainly on donations of books, pamphlets, etc., the support of members is needed. If any members would like to donate material to the library, Mrs Knight will be pleased to hear from them.
