This talk will offer some selected links between aspects of medicine and war, with particular focus on the ways in which society has come to remember those we have lost.
Extensive use will be made of illustrations, mainly photographs, and reference will be made to some forgotten heroes who perhaps deserve greater prominence.
In this year of the Armistice Centennial, the story will highlight events in our own community, and the efforts of the Society.
Many will remember Dr Stuart as one of our GPs. He has long had an interest in this aspect of medicine.
THERE WILL ALSO BE A SMALL EXHIBITION OF THE DRAFT PLANS FOR THE REFURBISHMENT OF THE WAR MEMORIAL IN THE CHURCHYARD
The Council have published proposals for the above and are asking for objections or representations by Friday 16 March.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Knowle Conservation Area which covers the High Street and adjoining streets. We will have a presentation by Peter Stean and Martin Lander, Trustees of Stamford Civic Society to share thoughts about how the Conservation Area status has benefitted Stamford, the first Conservation Area in the country.
