Goodbye 2007

As 2007 closes, time to look back at the year. Only positive and good things I think, there’s too much doom and gloom around already! 2007 has seen a number of centenaries both personal to me and personal to everyone else. My Mum’s parents were both born in 1907. It’s hard to think of them […]

Warley MRC Exhibition
