Learn about the groups we offer


In October Tony Nicholson paid his second visit to talk to our group and once again he didn’t fail to entertain.  He picked up with the story of the Victorian photos, letters and souvenirs he’d found in the loft of his house in Brotton back in 1999. We had already learned of the back story of Annie Johnson which he had pieced together from these treasures, but today he developed her story further – concentrating more on Gus, her husband, who turned out to be a very interesting character!

Full write up in the next newsletter.
