Clock Making in Lurgan

cgardiner

Charlie Gardiner fascinated members of Waringstown Historical Society recently with a presentation about the historical legacy of clock making in Lurgan. It was definitely a case of 'hidden history' which delighted all the members. The next meeting is on Thursday 17 April in Waringstown Cricket Club. The subject is Reflections on the Somme led by David Scott from the Somme Centre.'

February 2014 Update

FredCooper

Fred Cooper fascinated participants at the February meeting of Waringstown Historical Society with his old footage of Waringstown and the lost age of steam in Armagh and Down.

 

The films were very evocative of that bygone age but also very informative about the linen industry and the railways. Fred was ably assisted by Charles Friel whose comprehensive knowledge of the railway, its history and personnel made for an enthralling evening. WHS would like to thank both Fred and Charles for attending and entertaining a packed hall.

Right Tracks Workshop

WCDA has organised an opportunity for people to improve their road safety and awareness. Alan Gilmore from Right Tracks (funded by DOE) will be hosting an evening workshop on Tuesday 11th March at 7:00pm in the Planter's Tavern, Waringstown.

The Right Tracks project will highlight the benefits of safe driving particularly on rural roads and promote good road safety practice through information and practical training (the session on 11th March will not have a practical element, although anyone who wishes to have a driver assessment can chat to Alan Gilmore on the night).

The cost of the session is free.
