7.30pm to 10pm, Wednesday 24 April 2019
We will hold our Annual General Meeting and election of committee members and officers, which usually is completed in about 10-15 minutes. If anyone is interested in joining the committee or indeed standing as Chairman, Treasurer or Secretary, please contact the secretary for details.
After the AGM at 8pm we will welcome Eric Scaife who will give a talk on the Yorkshire dialect combining history and humour. Eric, a former joiner, is an enthusiastic member of both the Yorkshire Dialect Society and the Yorkshire Ridings Society, both of which he promotes whole heartedly. The Yorkshire dialect is not an example of slang or lazy speech but a living language which he and many others are working hard to keep alive, being derived from the many languages used over the centuries, with many words still recognisable in everyday speech and place names.
There will be complimentary refreshments and parking is free.
Come along. All members and guests are welcome.
