A “HANDS-on history” session will showcase some of the region’s interesting heritage artefacts.

Swinton historian Ken Wyatt will bring along a box full of unusual and interesting objects, each with a story behind them.

Group secretary Bill Lawrence said: “People at the meeting will be able to handle the objects rather than just looking at images; it’s a real ‘hands on history’ session.

“People are invited to come along to hear about who used the items, how they were used and how these curiosities have been handed down.”

The talk will start at 7.30pm, with an entry fee of £2.50 for non members and £1.50 for members.
