John Wilkinson

John Wilkinson (AKA Alan Bickley)

A brief report on our recent event

For various reasons our originally booked speaker wasn't able to give his promised talk,  We were able to obtain a late substitute however, in the form of our Vice Chair Mr Alan Bickley who disguised himself (Loosely) as John Wilkinson as can be seen in the photo above.  Alan gave a short talk recounting some facts about JW, there is a significant amount of information about JW already online a good starting point is here .

Our event was fairly well attended, although a few of our regulars were noticed by their absence! a number of artefacts and maps were on display, as witnessed by the photographs below.  A Blue Plaque was also on display which is to be mounted at Wilkinson School later this year, we hope to bring you a report and pictures of the unveiling in due course.
