November 2018 Meeting

‘Christmas Traditions’

Speaker: Ken Pye, Broadcaster & Writer

20th November 2018


In November we welcomed back Broadcaster & Writer, Ken Pye telling us of his ‘Christmas Traditions’.  We discovered where the traditions of having turkey for Christmas dinner came from and the story of St Nicholas.  We learnt where the first grotto was opened and were taken back in time with some wonderful pictures of Liverpool’s Blackers & Lewis’s store Grottos.

This was Ken’s second visit to Rainhill WI and we are sure he will be back.
