GER­RARDS CROSS: Peo­ple can hear a talk on ship­builders at a lec­ture next week.

Ger­rards Cross Sail­ing As­so­ci­a­tion will hear about R&J Craig of Glas­gow, who built square-rigged sail­ing ships from 1875 to 1907, which were so suc­cess­ful they lasted 50 years longer than ex­pected.

Bill Cum­ming’s talk will be at the Memo­rial Cen­tre in East Common on Wed­nes­day from 7.30pm.

Non-mem­bers are wel­come to at­tend.
