Urban History/Regional and Local History Centre Launch Event Wednesday October 5th 2022.
Karen Donegani reports that this went very well, estimate around 60+ people attended of whom maybe 25 were Friends. The free, giveaway book stall saw a brisk trade throughout the afternoon. Lots of reunions, lots of chatter, a few very short speeches. A very positive reaction to the rooms and good overall feedback from Friends
A full report will be included in the forthcoming Friends newsletter
