SEPTEMBER 27TH
Was: EVERY DAY LIFE of COUNTRY FOLK (& LYDIATE HALL) by Mr Dave Russell. Dave gave a very interesting talk about the Hall, St. Catherine's Chapel and the "Scotch Piper" Pub next door. He linked this with a national time-line, showing how national events sometimes impinged on local life.

October 18th
The West Lancs Heritage is hosting an event at Hurleston Hall, where visitors will be encouraged to talk about their memories of the Scarisbrick area. One of the lead speakers will be a member of the ODFHS and the Chairman for the evening will be our own Bill Huyton. 7.30 PM 18/10/17

OCTOBER 25TH
is our own next meeting, in the Guide Hut.
Mr Dave Hughes (a local Bowman) will talk about BOWS AND BOWMEN, their attire & life.
It is believed that up to 100 bowmen from our district were at Agincourt so there is keen interest in the activity.
