Our final conference was held on 2 November 2019. We would like to thank all those who have contributed to the success of the past ten years, many of whom have had no particular obligation to give so freely of their time – they know who they are.
Particular thanks are due to Dr. Alan Crosby and Dr. Michael Winstanley, both of whom have not only provided excellent lectures, but have also been a source of encouragement, and guidance, to ourselves. We are also much appreciative of the support provided by the Lancashire Local History Federation, our conference partners.
And lastly, but by no means least, to all who have attended our conferences. Since January 2010, we have organised twelve such events covering forty-three lectures carried out by twenty-one speakers. Your support, combined with the opportunity to share our common interest in local history, has made it all worthwhile. The many kind comments received since the final conference have been greatly valued. It is good to know that our efforts have been considered worthwhile.
