Local History Group AGM and talk
The August meeting of Werrington Local History Group was the amazing story of what happened to Josephine Pratchett following the sinking of the Laconia by a torpedo in WW2. The large number present listened intently to the remarkable story told with wit, humour and humility by the lady herself. The next meeting at the Village Centre in Church Street is tonight at 7.30pm (Thursday). It will be the AGM followed by Nick Sandford, whose talk is entitled ‘Life’s Better with Trees’. The Woodland Trust is the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity, owning over 1000 woods across the UK, including two in Peterborough. Hear about how they propose to create a landscape rich in trees and woods and the benefits which this can bring for people in Peterborough and across the country. You will also be able to find out about the varied programme of talks and entertainment planned for the year ahead. Visitors are welcome - £2.50.
