Centenary Launch to celebrate the founding of our Society 100 years ago

Caffé Isola

Friday 8th November 2019

7pm – 9pm

—————— c ——————- 

The event will take place at Caffé Isola, Newport – formerly a chapel where Rev. Daniel Tyerman is commemorated – the founder of an earlier version of the IW Natural History Society, which had it continued, would have been one of the oldest such societies in the World!

The inaugural meeting of the IWNHAS that we know today was held on November 8th 1919 and founded by Frank Morey.

During the evening, there will be three short presentations:

– Rev.Tyerman and the history of the building which is now Caffé Isola
– Life in 1919 – the year in which our Society was founded
– Frank Morey – the founder of the IWNHAS

with plenty of time to enjoy a drink, a bite to eat and catch-up with fellow members and friends
