Top of the Hill
Back in the summer 40 people attended a meeting to discuss forming a social group for our community. A committee is now active and has begun presenting various activities that all will be welcome to attend.
We at Top of The Hill (ToTH) have developed a most interesting, provocative, wide-ranging and involving programme for the rest of the year. We have fascinating speakers, thought-provoking discussions and, we hope, an educational day trip! Our programme is designed for the young at heart, whatever their chronological age! You can even bring your friends who are not members of MHS!
Please scroll down to Wednesday, 5 December for a link to details of our proposed outing to Bevis Marks Synagogue.
