CHS LECTURES 2018 – 2019 

We have a Special 50th Anniversary Lecture on 8th May this year, to be held at the Old Hall, Old College, on the seafront at Aberystwyth SY23 2AX. Entry to hear forensic scientist Prof Wiltshire includes a glass of wine.

Our usual lectures are held at 7.30 pm in Waunfawr Community Hall Brynceinion, Waunfawr, Aberystwyth SY23 3PN click here for a map showing the venue.
From September to March, the CHS meet on every second Tuesday of the month at 7.30 on Penglais Hill Aberystwyth. We try for at least one autumn lecturer who brings plants and there is a plant-swap table from September to November. The evenings finish with tea & coffee – except for December, when we have a glass of wine and mince pies. Signs to the hall are put out on the night and there is parking next to the Hall with level access. Lecture reports are in the spring issue of Spadework.
