Talk This Wednesday

A reminder that this month’s History Society talk is Graham Mitchell explaining “Why Stanbury Never Got a Railway Station”. It is being held on Wednesday 10th March, and ‘doors’ open at 7 pm. The talk is happening online via Zoom and you have to be a paid-up History Society member to join the meeting (for details on how to join the History Society click here). If you are a member you should have had your email with details on how to join the meeting. Please let us know if you have not received it.

Next month’s talk is David Scrimgeour on “Criminal Lunacy – From Dock to Asylum in 19th Century Yorkshire”. Forthcoming talks include a history of St. John’s Church in Ingrow, and a talk on how the town has been represented in Parliament. Keep an eye on the event-listings on Facebook and on our website for more details. Most of these are members-only talks so do join up.

Zooming into the future

On Wednesday the 10th February 2021, the Society held it’s first Speaker’s Meeting via Zoom.

This first meeting was to an open meeting to help people find their way around our Flickr Site.

We started with a little update on the donations to the Archives , that we have received recently and then Tim started his presentation about 7:30.

The meeting was well attended, with both Members and Visitors. Steve controlled the meeting, so people could ask questions when they felt the need.

After the presentation the meeting was opened up for general discussion and information that was useful to others.

It was nice to see that once people got talking the conversations flowed as well as they normally do in the Library.

Tim has produced HOW TO guide to guide those of you who couldn’t join us around Flickr.

While the meeting was certainly different I think that we succeeded in making it fun.

Thanks to Steve and Tim for making the meeting possible.
