Dates for your Diary
Mon Apr 29th The Mulberry Harbour Project
An idea of pure genius. Here will be told the story of a tiny harbour in North Wales leading to one of the most audacious seaborne operations the world has ever seen.
You will hear about coincidence, chance and sheer luck. In two months time it will be the eightieth and probably last meaningful anniversary of those of us who were alive in 1944.

(Sorry - change of plan - here is an updated speaker for today.)
Mon May 20th Adam Bleese - Above the Law
Adrian worked for years as a civilian operator of cameras on board Suffolk Police Helicopters. His talk covers his career and how the force has changed, not necessarily for the better. He sets out how he fell into this unusual line of work and gives plenty of anecdotes about his time up in the air.
Mon Jun 24th Joanna Hudson - the last climbing boy
Graham Brewster was an 11-year-old climbing boy whose death up a chimney in 1875 when working at a mental asylum in Cambridgeshire was the catalyst for a change in the child labour laws that changed the lives of children across the land.
This talk is about her journey finding out about George and shock that his story is largely unknown. She will take us back to industrial Britain when child labour was the backbone of the industrial age. She'll take us through her journey and how George's story unfolded before her eyes. There's more to her project to get his name known and you'll be amazed at what she has uncovered and what may be discovered in the future.
