Bilston Steelworks – Some Personal Memories

The Society’s new season of talks begins on Thursday 11th September at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew’s Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley.

The speaker is Mrs Andree Hickey who worked for the Ettingshall based firm from the 1950s until the closure in the late 1970s.

Memorabilia, photographs and a digital presentation promise a fascinating insight into a world of work fondly remembered.

As usual visitors are invited to come along – admission £1.  Full membership of the Society costs £4 and gives free access to the programme of talks.
