As we start to think about summer events we decided to start with our own webinar, and Geoff Brandwood has offered us a sequel to his popular lecture on Victorian Pubs, this time with a focus on the North.

‘North and South, Victorian heritage in our pubs’ will air on 1 July, with booking through the Society’s website. Details in the online newsletters.

We are currently planning two walks in the summer. This will of course be dependent on restrictions easing, and public buildings reopening. Booking details to follow by email, and there may be safety measures we have to ask you to take, such as mask wearing. Clear details will follow as soon as possible and will also be published on the Society’s Website under West Yorkshire.

Saturday 14 August: Victorian Pontefract, with Janet Douglas. Probably afternoon, and we are hoping for entry to the old Library, now the museum.

Saturday 25 September: Central Huddersfield. Starting and finishing at the Grade 1 listed railway station, this will include a tour of the Town Hall Concert Hall and Magistrates’ Court. Probable start at 10 am

When we can plan late autumn and winter events with more certainty, including an AGM, we will let you know. Let us have your views on indoor and outdoor events.
