10th June 2015 - Magna Carta 800 Years
BFU3A’s Celebration of the
Magna Carta 800th Anniversary
We decided to keep the event low key and to
it accessible for all.
To this end, we decided to hold a short walk at Runnymede (thanks to
our Walk Leader for organising this) followed by a talk on what the
Magna Carta means for both English & World history, it being
the basis of law in many countries. (thanks to
Local History for providing the talk). This was
then followed by a picnic held on the NT Runnymede fields
directly on the river. Over 50 members turned up to enjoy the
day. Members were able to come for all 3 parts of the day, or
just participate in one or two sections. This seemed to work,
as not everyone enjoys a walk, or a talk, or indeed a picnic.
We were very lucky with the weather, which was the sunniest day of the
week. There was an exhibition about Magna
Carta in the boathouse (which was very informative), which many took
the opportunity to visit, as we were there. This
was a free day out, the only cost being the car park for non NT
members. The excitement is now over for another 100 years which we hope
BFU3A will celebrate again in 2115.
