This event will be held at HASLINGDEN Cricket Club on Sunday 24th March Several local societies and organisations will be represented (from as far afield as Rammy and Bury) .It is likely there will be a family history help-desk and a secondhand book stall specialising in Lancashire history (that's me)

Enquiries: chris_aspin@yahoo.co.uk or John Simpson in Accrington Library.

If you know of any avenue of publicity such as a facebook page where this could be posted - please do so. It deserves to be a success

Wadey - just what I wanted. I am hoping there may be Facebook pages that someone else will post on - (I have no knowledge of twitter but hope that others will do summat on there) I have posted on the Accyweb and Blackburn websites, as this will be intersting to Rossendale folk who live in those out-of-Valley places -'beyond the Thrutch'

I am going to apply for a job that's been vacant for many years, and hope that I will be appointed before this event - The Rossendale Ale-taster.

Weather permitting, the fair starts at 11am and runs through to 4pm, though it may finish a bit earlier if things are quiet I suppose.

I will send a report -= weather permitting. However, the organisers have researched the weather and told me that I should have no problem Sunday morning over the Grane and by noon it will be sunny.

Re: Rossendale Local History Day 2013

Despite the bitterly cold weather, the day went well, with a decent attendance and only one society not turning up through fear of getting stuck in snow. It was deemed a successful event, and another is on the cards for next year. I met some interesting people to discuss local history with. Wadey turned up too.( that is not to imply that he was not interesting|)

He is historical though, wasn't he around when Rossendale was first settled?
