History for Fun

Last year has flown by so fast it’s hard to believe, that as group, we are approaching our first anniversary.  During a packed year, we have enjoyed some really interesting topics, many of which originated from members within our own group.  We certainly plan on keeping up the good work as we begin another year of delving into history’s great tales.

Our first talk for this year (17th Jan) will be about  Queen Mary (the wife of George V); we’ve all seen pictures of this very stately lady with her pearl choker but to find out about the lady herself join us at our  regular venue – Kensington House on the third Friday of each month at 14:30

Our future programme will include talks on George Washington, Joan of Arc and the Brothers of Shugborough.    All are welcome.

One thought on “History for Fun

  1. Dear M and L U3A,

    Would you be able to tell me please if there is a Maghull local history society that I could get in touch with to find out a little local information?

    I am particularly interested in West House, that used to stand on Liverpool Road South where the maisonettes are now. My parents bought 234 LRS new in 1957. West House was still standing then, but it was pulled down and the flats built before I was born. I know of Dr Rowlands’s book (in fact I knew Dr Rowlands when I still lived in Maghull). I now live in Bristol.

    Any help will be gratefully received.

    Thank you.
