Forthcoming Events:

Sunday 21st September

Sudley House, in Mossley Hill Road, L18, has recently reopened to the public after a major refurbishment programme. It was the home of the merchant and shipowner George Holt, who amassed a collection of artworks. His daughter Emma Holt bequeathed the house and paintings to the City of Liverpool in 1944, and Sudley today provides a rare chance to see the art collection of a wealthy Victorian in its original setting.

We have arranged a private guided tour for Gateacre Society members on the afternoon of 21st September. Meet at the house at 2pm. (Refreshments are available in the tearoom from 10 am-4.30 pm). There is no charge for admission or for the tour, but we do need to know numbers in advance. Please phone either Rosemary or Brian Doman by Wednesday 17th September at the latest.

Sunday 19th October

The 34th A.G.M. of the Gateacre Society will be held on 19th October 2008 at 2pm in Gateacre Chapel, Gateacre Brow, Liverpool L25 3PB. Following the success of our Sunday afternoon 'history in pictures' meetings earlier in the year, we have decided to combine the next one with our AGM. Beryl Plent will be showing a selection of historic images of the Halewood Road area, after we have concluded the 'business' part of the meeting which will include reports on the past year's activities and the election of a new Committee. We shall also - subject to the agreement of the meeting - be taking the opportunity to amend our Constitution: reducing the quorum for General Meetings from 20 to 15, and specifying that the Society's Officers will in future be elected by the Committee rather than directly at the AGM.
