You can access Zoom through the internet or just using your home landline.
Instructions and access codes have been sent to you separately.

Thu Oct 1st Morning Talk beginning at 11.00 am - access Zoom from 10.45 am
Richard Walker – Mrs. Patrick Bronte
“The Bronte’s are perhaps the best known literary family in Britain. What is not so well known is that although born in West Yorkshire, they were the progeny of a Celtic couple from Cornwall and Ireland. I want to tell the story of the woman who would become the mother of the Brontes. She was born into one of the wealthiest and most respected families in Cornwall, and a chance invitation to help a relative in Yorkshire tempted her to move 400 miles to Yorkshire, where in 1812, purely by chance she met a lonely clergyman from Ireland. They spelt out their love for one another in a series of 9 letters written over a period of 4 months in 1812, and the rest as they say is history. There are connections to Robert Louis Stevenson, Gilbert and Sullivan, and even Kipling, as well as her life and experience being reflected in the novels of her famous children.”
