On 28 February there was an inaugural meeting of the Scruton History Group attended by over 20 people. There was much enthusiasm and discussion about the rich archive of historical material available about Scruton. Ideas were suggested for a number of projects. Then came COVID!

Little progress has been made since, but don’t give up!  Feedback from February’s meeting has been kept and everyone who attended will be contacted in the New Year with the aim of ‘picking up where we left off’. If you didn’t attend the February meeting but would like to be kept up to date, please contact the editor.
