‘Photos on the Wall’: brilliant book launch at New Mill Club

Everyone present agreed we had a brilliant night for Tom Ashworth’s book launch, ‘Photos on the Wall: a short history of New Mill and the Great War’, down at New Mill Club. Over fifty attended, listening to short presentations by Rev. Sean Robertshaw (Christ Church, New Mill), Neil Tinker from The British Legion and the author himself. The final act was a short set from New Mill Male Voice Choir, fresh from their successful Cornish tour.

Also in attendance were Jason McCartney MP, Geoffrey Lockwood (Chair of the Memorial Room Trustees), Paul Ward (Professor of Modern British History, University of Huddersfield) with representatives from Holmfirth Rotary, Holmfirth Probus, Huddersfield Historical Society, Hepworth and Holmfirth Holy Trinity Churches and Holmfirth Parish Council.
