WINTER TALKS 2017 / 18

2017

October 10. Andy Lowe: ‘Making a Grand Entrance.’ A splendid start to our new season with possibly an apposite title!

November 14. Ian Jones: ‘The lakes seen through Victorian slides.’ Ian, one of our fairly regular speakers, brings us his latest presentation.

December 12. Sue Jones: ‘The Way it Was. Early Childhood Memories of Farming, Shops and Christmas.’  This is part of the very successful Windermere Oral History Project.

2018

January 9. Rob David: ‘How to study the history of your house.’  This talk should be useful in conjunction with the Society’s buildings project.

February 13. David Joy: ‘Liverpool Cowcatchers.’  An unlikely title but a fascinating talk, with updated links to Kentmere.

March 13. Trevor Hughes: ‘Kendal ‘s Yards.’ This is based on the new book about the Yards of Kendal by Trevor Hughes and Patricia Hovey.

April 10. AGM and Members’ evening.
