The Greater Elland Historical Society would like to thank Mr David Glanfield for his continued support of the Society.
The articles he puts in the Go Local magazine are not only informative but have introduced our activities to many people. A number of new members have attended our monthly talks or visited the history room this year because they have read his articles and seen the information about GEHS.
The Society would like also like to thank Mrs Julie Blakeley and Mrs Doreen Rothwell who kindly represented the Society at the Remembrance Day Service and laid a wreath at the Elland War Memorial.
Our next monthly meeting will be on 8 December 2021. This will be our Christmas Meeting. The speaker will be our very own Andrew Gilmour and the theme of his talk will be on “A Christmas Carol”. There will also be our annual Brian Hargreaves free raffle and refreshments.
As well as a monthly meeting in December, Rose has organised a tour of Cooper Kitchen and Bar prior to its grand opening. It has an original cycle made by kitchen, local bricks and artwork of local features. This winter outing will take place on 2nd December 2021.
The History Room’s will be open on Thursday 16th December but will then close for Christmas and re-open on Tuesday 11th December 2022.
The first meeting of 2022 will be on Wednesday 12th January at the Elland W.M.C. when the speaker will be David Allen – “The Essence of a Georgian Gentleman’”
