Our old mucker Frankenkeith has mostly finished with his seafaring acts of derring-do for the season and is taking up position for the forthcoming Rame History Group season of talks.
Mrs The Millbrooker and I have said we might well be interested in going along to one or two evenings with Frankenkeith's historically-fascinated chums in the RHG. As a result he's kindly sent us a list of forthcomings.
Should anyone else fancy heading to Cawsand Congregational Hall on Garrett Street and parting with a piffling £2 (same cost for any event), here's a list of what's occurring and when. Start time is always 7:30 in the p.m.
Monday 18th October
"Royal Silver Mining in the Tamar Valley"
with Cynthia Gaskell Brown.
Monday 15th November
"The Great Blizzard of 1891"
with Roger Collins
Monday 17th January
"Pilchards and Palaces"
(a very relevant subject to this area)
with Ron Smith
Monday 21st February
"The Edgcumbes and Musical History"
with Mike O'Connor OBE
(A Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd - this will be a "lecture with musical illustrations")
Monday 21st March
with Sue Andrew
Sue is an expert on craftsmanship and the meaning of medieval church roof bosses.
"...the subject is huge...if you want to know all about
the Green Men and the Three Hares make sure you're [there]"
Sounds good to me - sociable, interesting and a jolly pleasant way to spend a winter's evening. See you there, I hope.
