Unless noted otherwise, we hold our monthly meetings at The Kingswood Complex, Kingsway, Newton, Chester, CH2 2FF, starting from 19:15. The programme for the following months is:
Thursday 28th Sept 2023
Linda Webb will be talking to us about "Hoole in the 1920s".
Thursday 19th Oct 2023
"Victorian Millinery & Prostitution", Su Lowy. The story of the milliner in the Victorian period reflects the many contradictions of that era. The talk attempts to determine what a milliner’s work was and how that trade led to a close relationship with prostitution. It also links fact and fiction & the moral mores of the time.
Saturday 11th Nov 2023
At 10.45 am at the Hoole and Newton War Memorial. A short act of remembrance will take place as we think about our local folk who lost their lives in conflict. The Society will be laying a wreath on your behalf.
Thursday 23rd Nov 2023
