We have a really good programme planned. Well known local historian Tish Lawson will be speaking on “William Fry, from Station Master to Secretary of the Salt Charities”. Fry crops up in various roles in the early years of Saltaire’s development, so we’ll all be learning something new about the village’s early days.
In addition to Tish’s presentation there’ll be our now traditional Christmas Quiz and refreshments. Dust off your memory cells & be prepared.…!
If you live locally you will have probably noticed that the Mill’s chimney has been undergoing repair. Ever wondered what the village must look like from the chimney’s top? We’ll be displaying a series of photos taken from the top, courtesy of local photographer Paul Taylor- they’re great shots.
What better way to spend a winter’s evening than to come along on Thursday – look forward to seeing all who can make it!
Dave (Shaw), for Saltaire History Club
