Will Farmer returns to Worsley on May 9th 2017

This forthcoming event may be of interest in those of you who are interested in antiques.   EPRA Committee

 

On behalf of the President and members of the Inner Wheel Club of Worsley. Will Farmer of the 'BBC Antiques Roadshow' has kindly agreed to return to Worsley on Tuesday May 9th 2017.

The venue will once again be the drama studio at Bridgewater School, Will's talk is 'We had one of those', a startling look at everyday objects, often thrown away, which are now worth a small fortune!

Billed as a 'Great fun talk which will shock as well as educate', the talk will be followed by interval drinks in the school restaurant, then back to the drama studio for valuations of glass and ceramics brought in by audience members. Last year this section of the evening led to some great surprises as Will shared his knowledge of the origins of items.

The event will begin at 7.30 pm. Tickets cost £10.00 each, to include an interval drink, and all proceeds will go to local charities. Last year more than £1000.00 was raised for charity so thank you to all who attended. We hope that you will make a return visit this year, or come for the first time if you didn't make it in 2016.

Tickets can be reserved by emailing to maz.murphy@tesco.net, by ringing Mary Murphy on 0161 707 3427 or by asking any member of the Inner Wheel Club of Worsley to reserve tickets for you.


Photographs of Ellesmere Park from a bygone era

We found a website called Manchester Postcards. On that site are several Edwardian and older pictures taken in and around Ellesmere Park.

Three Sisters declared nature reserve

Over the last two years the EPRA Committee have been working with officers of Salford City Council, the Salford Ranges and Natural England to establish the Three Sisters as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR).  Local Nature Reserves are for both people and wildlife. They are places with wildlife or geological features that are of special interest locally. They offer people special opportunities to study or learn about nature or simply to enjoy it.  

When David Jeffreys from Natural England visited the Three Sisters in May 2013 he was very impressed with the site, in particular the amount of use of the area by local residents.  Educational use of Local Nature Reserves is an important prerequisite to establishing an LNR.  During the visit, and quite unplanned, a group of students from the college came on to the Three Sisters with their tutor and began to undertake a survey of the wild life.  It could not have been more appropriate, even if we had planned the biology lesson on the Three Sisters to coincide with the visit of Natural England.  

We are pleased to report that the Local Authority has now designated the Three Sisters as a Local Nature Reserve.  A copy of the designation letter is here and a location map is here.  The LNR status will provide an additional level of protection for the Three Sisters and help in attracting funds to maintain the site in the future.
