Mu­sic, swim­ming and an an­niver­sary

Accrington Observer - - LOOKING BACK -

AN or­ches­tral con­cert or­gan­ised by the Moor­head Mu­sic So­ci­ety at­tracted an au­di­ence of more than 160 peo­ple.

The pic­ture, above right, was taken in 1976 by former Ob­server pho­tog­ra­pher Garth Daw­son and shows mem­bers of Moor­head High School’s madri­gal group, the QC Singers, with con­duc­tor Mal­colm White.

Great Har­wood’s Mercer Hall Baths was alive with ‘Ot­ters’ as mem­bers of the swim­ming club held their 10th an­nual gala,

right. More than 100 swim­mers took part and about 150 peo­ple at­tended.

A pre­sen­ta­tion of money to help dis­abled Guides and Brown­ies was made by the Brown­ies of Church Kirk.

Deb­o­rah Mitchell handed the money to the re­gional ex­ten­sion ad­vi­sor for North West Eng­land, El­iz­a­beth Brom­ley, at St Ni­cholas’ Ju­nior School in Church, above left. The Brown­ies raised £11.50.

Our fi­nal pic­ture this week, top, shows mem­bers of the Ac­cring­ton Nat­u­ral­ists and An­ti­quar­i­ans So­ci­ety cel­e­brat­ing its 120th an­niver­sary.
