It was the first day back for Kendall Prosser and the Living at Home History Group at Salem Methodist Church in Smallthorne. Kendall had organised a talk by Sid Bailey a well known local teacher and historian. I had booked the day off work to attend this and do some other research.
As the exercise group left and the History group gathered, Kendall went to fetch Sid who is now in his 90’s (born 1922) and when he arrived, Sid took his place at a table in front a dozen or so interested folk.
The local history group run by Kendall Prosser will be starting again on September 30th. The first meeting will include a talk on Workhouses by Sid Bailey. Start times are 11.30 and are held at Salem Methodist Church the group is called stoke north live at home scheme and anyone over 50 will be made more than welcome if they want to attend.

This is in addition to the normal Sunday service at 10.30am.
