Thank You Charlie!

Charlie Bhowmick, MBE, delivered an entertaining talk to History Society members on Wednesday evening. He regaled those present with tales of the culture shock of moving to Keighley from Calcutta in the 1950s; of his meeting the Queen to receive his MBE; of running in the London marathon to raise funds for a Keighley disability charity; and of the pride he feels for the town that has been his home for over 60 years. The History Society would like to say an enormous thanks to Charlie for coming along to talk to us.

Details of the next guest speaker meetings have just been added to the event calendar.
