Meetings at Northampton are held at 7:30pm on the fourth Monday of every month except August. We have a varied program with speakers on family history, social and local history or sources of research. This is followed by refreshments and a chance to socialise or peruse the bookstall. We are a small, friendly branch and there are always members of the Executive Committee (and others) available to offer help and advice if required.
We meet at Weston Favell Parish Hall, on the corner of Wellingborough Road and Booth Lane and there is ample parking on site. The site is fully accessible for disabled visitors.
Branch Committee: Keith Steggles; Paul Boniface & Angela Scarsbrook
