BBC historian to give Magna Carta talk

Historian Dr Nick Barratt, who has made regular appearances on BBC’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, will give a talk in Surrey on the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta.

The ‘1215 And All That’ talk takes place at Surrey History Centre, Woking, on Saturday 20 June (2.30pm) and will focus on the events that led to the sealing of the charter.

It will follow the 800th anniversary event and is billed as this year’s ‘Surrey Heritage Annual Lecture’. Tickets cost £5 and can be booked on the county council’s website or by calling 01483 518737.

Nominate your unsung hero

People are being asked to single out unsung heroes who work tirelessly for good causes in Surrey.

Nominations are being sought for the second Living and Ageing Well awards organised by the county council.

There are nine categories and more information about the awards is on the county council website.

The deadline for applications is midnight on Wednesday 7 October.

Learn new digital skills at Guildford Library

A new monthly event aimed at helping people gain new digital skills is being launched this month at Guildford Library.

‘Digital Friday’ will see three sessions run throughout the day on the last Friday of every month, starting on 26 June.

The free sessions are open to people of all ages and the first one will focus on how to set up a website or blog.
