The Brighouse and District Heritage Newseum quarterly magazine is now at its 3rd Anniversary (number 12). The magazine is widely available in and around Brighouse shops and can also be purchased through the online shop on this website. It is also available through me as the magazine editor by telephoning 07854-755756 or 01422 - 205763. In an earlier magazine we told the story of the first Brighouse Charity Gala Queen Judi Pilling, who was crowned in 1965. She shares her story of that big day and where life has taken her since that memorable period in her life.
Here is an advertisement for a land sale in Rastrick 210 years ago. This land was ring fenced and could be split into six lots if that would help potential purchasers.
Brighouse Motor Cycle Club members and friends attending a New Year Party 1987. Whilst that was 34 years ago perhaps some of those who attended that celebration and are on this photograph still live in Brighouse or in one of the surrounding communities. If you are I would like to hear from you - what happened to the club and when did it close down?
I received some nice feedback this afternoon following my latest Zoom presentation 'All in a Days Work' this morning. If your group is looking for a zoom presenter please contact me through this website or telephone 07854-755756 to discuss the posibility.
Thanks for the talk. As the chairman said, it was one of the most entertaining talks that he’d heard for a long time. I always find zoom talks a bit odd because the whole audience is muted and you can’t tell if they are enjoying it, but they obviously did.
