We wish to advise you that the Next Chapter meeting will be held at Rockley on Saturday the 4th Of May 2013. A brief outline and the day’s events are. The members Rockley have planned an enjoyable day for us and I look forward to see you all there. 

Rockley was established in 1851 and flourished between 1860 and 1890, during that period a number of important and substantial buildings were built. 

The whole village is listed by the National Trust.

We will then be having the meeting and lunch at the School of Arts (opened 1890).
