About 2 years ago some colleaugues at St Michael’s Church, Kirkham, decided that they would have an evening out. Since then they have met on the 4th Monday of each month (excluding August and December) and the number attending has risen to about 20.
They have visited a Hindu Temple, a Brewery, ‘Street Life’ in Blackpool, Fleetwood Museum, as well as talks on the ‘History of Kirkham’, ‘Mediaeval Armoury’, a slide show about Kirkham, wine tasting, and other interesting topics. They usually manage to have a meal as part of the evening, and sometimes just go to a restaurant for a social evening together.
The evenings are open to males over 18 years old and they welcome anyone who wishes to join them, even if it is just occasionally.
The meetings for the rest of 2012 are:
24th September – Indian meal ar Buraq restaurant on the main Blackpool/Preston Road.
22nd October – Talk by a retired prison officer who worked at Lancaster Gaol. (venue: Kirkham URC).
26th November – Talk by Rick Bunday about his Doctorate Thesis (venue: St Michael’s, Kirkham)
Other meetings in the pipeline are a visit to a synagogue, a visit to the illuminations warehouse, plus of course the social evenings at local restaurants.
