The informal inaugral meeting was Thursday 19th March in the relaxed Tilley's Cafe on Barlow Moor Road. Everyone there has little projects on the go, and everyone knows people who couldn't make it who have an interest in the history of the area.
The Hardy Lane Co-op history project chimed in well. So well I've been invited to give a presentation at the next meeting on Thursday 23rd April at the same venue at 1500h. Just have to brush up on the dates and dig out some old photographs and it'll be sorted. Somebody is up for webcasting it - wow that would be good if it comes off. Well for novelty value but it's not prime time.
