Our next meeting:


A talk by Dr Jon Murden
on Tuesday 30th March at 8 p.m.
in Gateacre Chapel Hall,
Sandfield Road, L25

Liverpool 800 is a project based in the School of History at the University of Liverpool, the aim of which is to write a substantial new work outlining the history and development of the City of Liverpool. This will be published in the Year of Heritage 2007, which will celebrate the 800th anniversary of the granting of Liverpool's first 'charter' by King John.

The authors of the book hope to 'reflect the character and culture of Liverpool' and to base the later chapters on the memoirs of local people. They are also keen to receive comments and suggestions from community groups and Societies such as ours. So on 30th March one of the Project Team, Dr Jon Murden, will be visiting us to talk about what they have in mind - including the creation of an oral history archive - and to listen to our ideas.

The meeting will take place in Gateacre Chapel Hall,
Sandfield Road (off Gateacre Brow) starting at 8 p.m.

Gateacre Society members free of charge 
-  Visitors 50p
