CHEADLE CIVIC SOCIETY 56th ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

 

The 56th Cheadle Civic Society AGM will take place in the Upper Rooms (above Tesco Express on Wilmslow Road) on Wednesday, May 13th, 2020

 

Talk
Following the meeting, local journalist David Hulme will give a talk entitled: "The Vernon Mill Fire of 1902". This was one of the worst local industrial tragedies of the 20th Century when 10 men were killed at this large Stockport cotton mill. 
 

David's own grandfather, Issak Peet, was one of those who was killed and as such he has taken a very personal interest in the tragedy and has undertaken considerable research into exactly what happened.

 

We look forward to seeing as many members as possible on the 13th.
