Speakers' Meetings - 2018/19

 

Below are details of our speaker's meetings after Christmas and also some information about our New Year Lunch. 

 

Tuesday 12 February - John Stockill, a local builder and restorer, will talk about "Restoring and Rebuilding the Old Town"  

 

The meeting will take place at The Dower House Hotel, Bond End, Knaresborough, beginning at 7.30 pm.   The cost is £3 for members and £5 for non-members.  John has worked on some of the oldest buildings in Knaresborough and elsewhere so this should be an interesting talk.

 

Tuesday 12 March - Peter Lacey, a well known Knaresborian, will talk on "The Life and Times of St Robert of Knaresborough"

 

The meeting will take place at The Dower House Hotel, Bond End, Knaresborough, beginning at 7.30 pm.   The cost is £3 for members and £5 for non-members.  Peter has been instrumental in our celebrations this year of the 800th anniversary of the death of St Robert and is the author of "Tales of the Celebrity Hermit".  If anyone knows about the life of our local saint it is Peter!

 

On Wednesday 9 January we will have a New Year Lunch

 

As with this year's event, we will be holding this jointly with the Horticultural Society.  More details about this will follow very soon.
