Our meeting for January was the dramatic story of the Great Sheffield Flood of 1864, as told by Peter Machin.  This was a flood that devastated parts of Sheffield, on 11 March 1864, when the Dale Dyke Dam up near Bolsterstone broke as its reservoir was being filled for the first time. At least 240 people died and more than 600 houses were damaged or destroyed by the flood.

February’s speaker was due to be Mike Spick, but unfortunately he had to cancel only the day before due to illness.  Luckily for us Geoff Smales very kindly stepped in and gave an excellent talk about Rotherham Steel and WW1.  Geoff proved to be an excellent speaker, and moreover he does it to raise funds for Rotherham Alzheimer’s Society.

For our Christmas party we were treated to entertainment from Roy Hearne, which was very good. Ray sang several songs, mostly his own humorous compositions where he draws his material from the people and the world around him.
