History Group Programme

JANUARY 17TH. What about a surprise meeting? I will bite the bullet myself and present a talk about Hucknall called ‘Factories and Fabrics’ about the local textile industry. I will show some of the amazing fabrics and garments made in Hucknall.
FEBRUARY 21ST. Members Meeting. DATES IN HISTORY. Would members choose a date in British history, research it and tell what they have found. They might pick a date we all know such as 1066 (Battle of Hastings); 1952 (Elizabeth ll became Queen); 1854 Crimean War; or those a bit less common such as 1870 (Education Act); 1620 (Pilgrim Fathers sail to America). There is plenty of history to discover; choose your own favourite date.
MARCH 21ST . A talk requested by members. Peter Hammond is coming to give a talk and presentation about Albert Ball who was a Great War pilot.
Please also bring diaries and cash if possible to the JANUARY meeting to sign up for spring and summer visits.
April 4th Visit to Cresswell Crags which will include a special talk and a tour round the caves.
May 16th Visit to Blists Hill Museum and Ironbridge Gorge
June 20th Visit for a tour of Nottingham Caves from the Broadmarsh Centre.
Please note that for excursions sensible shoes should be worn due to uneven ground.
Please don’t forget you can contact me if you need help with your family history at any time.
