Talk about the Life and Times of Thomas Arthur Leonard

Special Notice

Thomas Arthur Leonard  

We are pleased to be able to welcome Dr Douglas Hope, who is going to speak on the life of the Rev Thomas Arthur Leonard, the founder of the Co-operative Holidays Association and the Holiday Fellowship.  Douglas was awarded a PhD for his research into the activities of the CHA and HF and has written a book about the life and times of T A Leonard.  He has been heard on radio and seen on television talking about T A Leonard’s contribution to the outdoor movement.  We are sure all of us who remember fondly CHA and HF holidays will find Douglas's talk very interesting.  The meeting will take place at 2.30pm on Thursday 23 November in St Werburgh's Church, Wilbraham Road, Chorlton.  Our sister CHA and HF Clubs from around the city have been invited to attend, so with luck you might meet up with old friends for a cup of tea and a natter after Douglas's talk.  There is a bus stop outside the church and the Metro is not far away. Cars should park in St Werburgh's Road outside the parish hall . (For satnav, use M21 0TJ).  The cost will be £2 payable on the door and we shall serve tea and biscuits.

Change to Winter Programme.
