    Default Garston History Exhibition info

    The exhibition is at Island Rd Methodist Church. 10 am to 4 pm Sat and Sunday ( 50p entrance). The Society has some excellent publications for sale. I'd recommend " Garston's Industries Part 1" pub June 2001 at 2.50. It has a write up about the bottle works and other industries. Also a reprint of " The Story of Garston and its Church" by Rev J M Swift originally published mid 1930s but with lots of info about Garston including its industries. I think it costs about 12. These and others should be on sale at the weekend

    If you have any old Garston photos, please bring them along and the society will be able to scan them on the day for possible inclusion in new book.

    I was sorry to have missed this (very busy weekend) - when is the next exhibition? I have got the Swift book - really interesting. We were thinking of asking the Society to do a small exhibition about Garston CE school at the School open night on 28 June - I know they have lots of material and they have let us exhibit some before.
