BURSCOUGH Her­itage Group’s Oc­to­ber meet­ing takes place on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 15, at 7.30pm. The theme is: What did Orm­skirk do for the evac­uees in WWII? Dur­ing WWII, to avoid the bomb­ings of Liver­pool, chil­dren were evac­u­ated into the sur­round­ing coun­try­side and towns – and Orm­skirk was one of these. In 2005, Roger Blax­all while work­ing for char­ity, The Dark Horse Ven­ture, or­gan­ised a re­union in Orm­skirk of 65 Liver­pool evac­uees. Roger Blax­all has many sto­ries to re­count, with pic­tures and arte­facts to help ex­plain what life was like for the evac­uees. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to come along to the monthly his­tory meet­ing at The Blue Mal­lard, on Burscough Wharf. En­trance is by £2 vol­un­tary do­na­tion to the Her­itage Group. For more in­for­ma­tion, ring Colin on 07931 356 204.
