NORTH EAST LABOUR HISTORY SOCIETY



Greetings one and all,

A First Tuesday meeting will be held at the Bridge Hotel, at 7.00 pm on 6th October 2015.

                       
   The Belgian Refugees: A Hundred Years On.

Next year marks one hundred years since the arrival of Belgian refugees into the region. Bill Lawrence  will bring us up to date with they and their families, and will discuss the events and publications planned, both in the North East and Belgium,  to  commemorate the centenary. Keith Armstrong will present his poem that has been specially commissioned as part of the celebrations.


'Thanks for the poem and thanks for your contribution the other evening. It went down well and the whole evening was entertaining as well as informative (I've been trying to reduce the po-faced academic element).' 
Brian Bennison (NELHS)
