MOSES HOLDEN and the WYRE U3a

Thursday 8th September 2016

On Tuesday 6th September I spoke to the Pilling Historical Society about Moses Holden. 

Two days later, on the afternoon of the 8th September, I was again in a similar area to talk about the same man. Considering that Moses Holden played such a significant part in early Wesleyan Methodist history in that area, it's surprising how few people have heard of him.

He went on to have a 38 year career as an itinerant Astronomical lecturer, achieving all that he ever did by teaching himself.
    An incredible man!! 
 The Monthly Meeting of the Wyre U3a as held  at the Little Theatre in Thornton. The facilities there are fantastic, with a large screen and an incredible sound system. There was an average attendance of around 120 people on Thursday.
Meetings start at 2pm, but get there in good time to secure a good seat!!
