Pictures of New Mills Past and Present: a Fun Quiz
Roger Bryant
This will take the form of a quiz conducted by the Society’s archivist Professor Roger Bryant. He will show photographs of New Mills, old and new, on the screen. Members are asked to arrange themselves into groups of four or five and to bring pencil and paper. It is also suggested that they bring some drink and glasses. Coffee and tea will be served afterwards. It will be preceded by a short (honest!) AGM. See meetings for details.
