Poetry of the Great War. To celebrate the centenary of the Armistice, proprietors are asked to bring along a favourite poem from the First World War. It could be by a well-known writer such as Owen, Sassoon, Brooke or Rosenberg or something more obscure. It doesn't matter if several people bring the same poem or if you don't want to bring one at all. We will read the poems and have a short discussion of each, led by the person who has brought it. It would be very helpful if those bringing poems could provide some photocopies of the chosen piece. 2:00pm in the Library.

Liverpool As You’ve Never Seen It Before   To all architecture enthusiasts, building buffs, development devotees and those with virtuosity in vistas, you are cordially invited to a visual extravaganza. Come along on Wednesday, 7 November at 16.30 hours for a virtual tour of your city region - Liverpool and its environs as you’ve never seen it before. Travel documents are not required, no visas or vaccinations either, and you don’t even need to bring sandwiches, Christine will be on standby! Our city region is in transition; new buildings are springing up; old ones are changing shape; architectural gems are emerging in surprising places, and familiar sights you’ve taken for granted, are being reborn for a new age. Schemes and concepts are shaking up old districts you’d forgotten about and places you’ve never heard of are becoming hotspots for a new generation. From the comfort of our newly refurbished library, Jim Bellew will provide a panoply of city sights and sounds (he talks a lot) via the astounding miracle of a modern version of an epidiascope. Also, in attendance will be Al Disley, a creator of pictures. (No, it’s not a spelling mistake, that’s a different one). Al is one of those people that not only sees the shapes, shades and colours that astound us, but can capture them in a moment in time to enrich our perception. So, come along and expose yourself to the risk of a good time. And, maybe one or two of those “I didn’t know that!” moments.
