Our 2018 Meetings

On 28 March, Mrs. Pam Richardson talked about a letter that described Ormskirk in the 1920s.  This talk revived many memories and was very well received.

On 25 April, unexpected circumstances prevented Mr. Paul Sherman from giving his planned talk on the Viking Settlements of West Lancashire, but we hope to arrange an alternative date in the future. Mrs. Dot Broady Hawkes stepped in to fill the gap, and provided a highly informative talk about the history of Lathom House between 1725 and 1925.

As is traditional, our next meeting on 23 May will begin with the Society's AGM, when there will be a chance to reflect on all aspects of the running of the Society. After this, Miss Kate Hurst will give a short talk on her background research for the BBC series Who Do You Think You Are?
