Wednesday 7th February                               ACHES – GEORGE WILDBRIDGE.

George will need no introduction to most of you. He has spoken to us on Dolls’ Houses, in my Liverpool Home and others. He always asks for a donation for his charity ACHES which stands for Association of Casualty and Health Emergency Simulators. The charity provides trained casualties for First Aid and Medical Training. A lot of members have said it would actually be interesting to hear more about the actual charity – so tonight George will be giving us an insight to the work they achieve.

 

Tuesday 13th March                      GALLOP THROUGH THE HISTORY OF CARRIAGE DRIVING  - ANTONIA GALLOP. 

Antonia has been around horses all her life, firstly earning a living training and producing for commercial work such as weddings and film work to enjoying showing them in their antique vehicles at National level. Now working as a qualified interpreter for deaf people, carriage horses remain her passion, supporting and encouraging fellow carriage drivers as area commissioner for the British Driving Society. This is a light hearted talk with a surprise in store!
 

WEDNESDAY 11th April                            PATRICK, FATHER OF THE BRONTES – COLIN PINNEY. 

Colin will present his live One Man Show, about Patrick Bronte, a former priest from Northern Ireland. He outlived his children and his wife of 40 years. Described as “strange” and a “half mad” man who was not naturally fond of children, he has been regarded as a cold and unfeeling man who terrorised his family with sudden outbursts of temper. This show includes a verse of Bramwell and Emily Bronte – with Charlotte’s comments. This promises to be a very different type lecture evening.
