We will be serenaded by the Secret Singers although their secret is out when you see them!  In addition we will be able to listen to a Lancashire Singer with a keyboard.  And why not enjoy a Lancashire Tea? What with Wycoller cake, Noyna Loaf, cheese scone, cheese and chutney we will be eating slices of our local heritage.

As it is the 100 year celebration of Women’s Sufferage there will be  a display relating to three local women Suffragists including a major activist, Nelson born and bred Selina Cooper.

So come along and enjoy the day…  Funds raised will go towards the supporting Pendle Heritage Centre.

According to Jeff Garcia,  “When you think about your heritage, you think about toughness and hard work”.    This is probably true of many of us who can remember grandparents and other relatives working in the cotton mills, coalmines  and factories in our local area.
