new group - West Lancashire Living History Society

Post by timbobarnacle »

Well, we have been thinking of this for a while - basically getting together like minded people in our area socially at first, to discuss forming a new group dedicated to living history, and traditional crafts, but also with a strong interest in drinking tea and eating home made cake. Time periods -to be worked on.

We have the benefit of a workshop, paddock as a base in Hesketh Bank, in between Southport and Preston, as well as a large kitchen with a good sized table to sit round and gossip - so any like minded people are more than welcome to come along to a first meeting, which we are planning to be after TORM. Anyone who is interested, please PM me or Lucy, or see us at TORM for a chat.

Look forward to hearing from people soon

Tim and Lucy

Always tempted by the prospect of cake, but do you think Hesketh Bank might be a bit too far to travel from Southport?

Oh, ermm, if you have your passports handy for when you come through the checkpoint at Crossens roundabout, you may well make it this far on a clear day from the Southport Smoke... :D

And Tim is of Yorkshire stock, so we have to be open minded, or his Mum would kill me.

Hello again,About time we fished or cut bait here,soooo
Just to say this idea has been mumbling away quietly, and a few of us will be having a chat and some lunch on Saturday the 15th of January, at our house, with a view to either starting a group, joining another one, which has been started quite near to us (cryptic...)or associating/affiliating with it as suits their choice and ours.
So, if you would like to come and have a chat, in a non committal sort of a way, and have some soup and cake, then PM me please, so I can get an idea of numbers.
All welcome, within reason, just need the numbers so we don't run out of cake.

Hi Lucy and Tim

Thanks for a lovely meeting. There were a lot of ideas. It would be good if we could all set down what we thought was suggested.

Do we do this in a topic or in a prvate discussion group?

I'lve got some ideas that I do not want to share public ally so I would vote for private.

I think whatever we do will need a lot of voluntary effort to get it off the ground but it mlay help us develop ideas for when the good times come again.

It was great that people came and talked ideas through in such a useful and positive way. It does look like something good could come from this, I agree a more private discussion online would be wise, to sort out the details, and we'll get on to that very quickly...
You all need to eat more cake though :wink:

So do we, and we wish the rest of VME were local too, that might necessitate our moving... and I don't think we'd find another place quite like this one.
But any time you fancy a visit to the frozen North, you'd be very welcome. 8-)
