I was thinking about making a visit to Southport and attending a meeting but I can't find anything about them for 2016. Has the society closed?

Hello,   The short answer is 'No, we are not closed and we are still alive and kicking' the longer answer is that the list for 2016 has not yet been finalised but should be complete within the next couple of weeks;  our meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of every month in The Lounge, Marshside Road Methodist Church, Marshside, Southport.   The Lounge is at the rear of the Church and there is ample parking at the front and rear of the Church.   You would be very welcome and you can enjoy a cup of tea/coffee during the Meeting.

Hello,

The meetings start at 7.30pm and the Lounge is open from 7.15pm.

There are 2 car parks  -  one at the front with access from Marshside

We'll look forward to meeting you.

Well that took 7 months to get a reply, only to be told there was a meeting last night, but no more listed on the website for the remainder of the year!

Our Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month in the Lounge of Marshside Road Methodist Church;  usually starting at 7.30pm our next Meeting is on Wednesday, 5th July 2017 and will be our Annual General Meeting which will take about 15 minutes - we may watch some local DVDs for the remainder of the evening (after refreshments)?

The AGM in May was postponed as we had not followed the correct procedure (i.e. did not notify members of their voting rights)!   In August we are having a guided walk along Lord Street, starting at the roundabout at the Southern end at 7.30pm, you would be very welcome to join us?  If you are in the area on Tuesday afternoon (2-4pm) or Friday morning (10am - 12noon) you can call into the Atkinson Library on Lord Street and speak with either Linda on Tuesday or myself on Friday.

Hello all and sundry...

Our next meeting in July is our AGM meeting.

We also have a speaker booked who is giving us a talk On The 1939 Register and how to use it in genealogical research.

I'm sorry that we are still struggling to get our mojo working with regards to the forum.  We have recently received a suggestion that we should start again from scratch but it would mean losing all the old posts and we are not prepared to that at this moment in time.

Please bear with us...and if there is anyone who would like to volunteer to join us on the committee then by all means come along in July.

Regards

Dotty
