Endings and Aftermath – the Final Year of WW1and the Conflicting Demands of Peace, 7th November 2018

Tom Ashworth, a military and social historian,  will be giving an illustrated talk based on his latest book ‘Endings and Aftermath’ at Brockholes Village Hall on Wednesday, November 7.

Tom’s talk deals with the final year of the conflict and the aftermath of the horror when the boys and men came home in 1919 and everything changed again.

They came home expecting a better life, indeed they came home feeling that they were entitled to a better life – after all, promises had been made – they were coming home to a ‘Land fit for Heroes’.

Except that it wasn’t.

Find out how the last year of war and the following year had such a great impact on families from the Huddersfield area.

All entrance receipts will be in aid of the Royal British Legion

There will also be a display of posters featuring local WW1 soldiers prepared by children from Brockholes School

‘Les’s Dance’ Evenings

Monthly social dance sessions organised by Brockholes residents, Les and Pauline Bailey. The evenings attract an average of 26 people and comprise popular sequence, ballroom and latin dances to song and instrumental music. The popularity of these evenings has grown by word of mouth and they are suitable for those with a reasonable command of the basic dance steps.

Les said, “This has become a social event for those who love to dance and enjoy a friendly and relaxing evening. We ensure there are a range of dances to suit all tastes including waltz, tango, swing, quickstep and even six styles of rumba. For those who have been tempted by the popularity of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ this is a chance to dance, meet friends and have a good time”.

The admission charge is £4 and people can bring their own drinks.
