Mick Symes and John Kay: Images from Lewes Past
Mick Symes was one of the founders, and is now the mainstay, of the very successful ‘Lewes Past’ Facebook group that enables interested people to share and exchange stories and pictures about the history of the town.
Over the few years that it has been running it has unearthed a huge archive of images, many of them known previously only to the families that created them, who are often no longer based in our area.
To avoid the worst of the problems that can be associated with social media, ‘Lewes Past’ is a membership group. Mick will talk briefly about his experiences founding and managing the group and then John will show a selection of the more remarkable images from its archive.
All are welcome from 7.00pm for free refreshments and updates on the Group’s activities. The talk will begin promptly at 7:30pm and will finish by 9.00pm.
There is an entry fee for these meetings, payable at the door, of £1 for members, and £3 for non-members.
Venue: The King’s Church building on Brooks Road, Lewes, BN7 2BY. (Between Tesco car park and Homebase)
