May 2017 news

Mon 8 May 2017

Our speaker for the 15th of May will be John Doughty, who is actually a registered tour guide and is a Lancastrian, born in Blackpool and who has lived all his professional life in the Manchester area. After a career in education where he taught in State schools, Independent schools, Outdoor Education Centres and University Departments of Continuing Education, he qualified as a Registered Tour Guide. As a member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding, and an Accredited Guide of the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, he offers a number of illustrated talks and guided walks.

His talk to us on the 15th of May will be about the life and times of James Brindley, Millwright and Canal Engineer 1716 - 1772. From humble beginnings, Brindley established himself as one of the most respected engineers in Britain.  Who was this larger than life character who today we call the Father of British Waterways?

If you are a retired man from either a business or professional background and you would like to come along, listen to the talk and find out more about the Club then please contact us via our website and we shall be pleased to make you welcome as a guest of one of our members.
