Last Call for Palethorpes

Tipton Library's photographic and memorabilia exhibition of Palethorpes will be finishing on Saturday 26th November so interested historians and former employees are reminded to come and see it before it returns to the company offices in Market Drayton
It has attracted many visitors and many ex employees have come into the library to share their photographs and memories. Some of these will be the basis of a reminiscence pack for use by library staff in local residential homes, community groups, dementia cafes and local schools
Robert Hazel, library manager, said "it has been very interesting listening to all the fabulous stories and seeing some of the amazing photogrpahs and it is important to preserve these memories for future generations"
The next event at the library will be an illustrated talk by popular historian Keth Hodgkins entitled 'Tipton from the Air' which will given at the library on Tuesday 22nd November at 10.30am. It is free admission by advance ticket only and tickets can be obtaiined by calling the library on 0121 557 1796
