Our 2018 meetings.

On January 24th 2018 we were able to introduce Dot Broady-Hawkes, who is our new meetings organiser.  She welcomed an old school friend, Mr Roger Blaxall, who talked to us about Local 20th Century Newspaper Research and Archives.  As is often the case in our little community, one of our members recognised a photo of herself in a 1950's newspaper on display.


On February 28th Mr Peter Gateley will talk about the "Lost Buildings of Town End".  Town End is the area near the Fire Station as you enter Ormskirk from Aughton.  Many people have expressed interest in this presentation.


On March 28th, Mrs Pam Richardson will talk about a letter that remembers Ormskirk in the 1920's
