WHITWELL Local History Group: On 24th July, Mrs Val Henstock gave a talk on Lucy Hutchinson - A Woman’s View of the Civil War. Lucy was 18 when she married John Hutchinson just before the beginning of the Civil War. They were Baptists and she believed that she should obey her husband in all things. He knew best! On only one occasion did she disobey him and that was when he was in prison facing execution for signing the Death Warrant of King Charles 1. She wrote a letter to court pleading his innocence and was successful in obtaining a reprieve. She was a strong woman who had been educated as well as any boy of that time. John died at the age of 46 and he was interred in Owlthorpe Church. Lucy erected a monument to him in the church and a poem written by her is engraved on the stone. There are no meetings during the month of August. The next meeting will be on 4th September when Mr Stephen Gay will talk about Woodhead - the Lost Railway (Part Two).
WI: The last meeting was the 65th Birthday of Whitwell WI and conducted by president Shirley Hill. The speaker Mrs Preece told the story of The Social Life of Tudor Costume and wore a replica dress herself. It is a dress used at Hardwick Hall on Costume days. The examples of various items were worn by the elite classes at court and were ruinously expensive. Most were made of velvet or silk and impossible to clean if soiled - no “Sketchleys“ in those days and great care was taken not to mark them. Birthday cake was served by tea hostesses Josie Newton and Jean Leah. Next meeting: Monday 13th August. Speaker, Mr Firth on Towns and Villages of England. All welcome.
