If we are forced to postpone it for any reason, we shall re-schedule it at the first available opportunity.     

‘The focus of the event is Record Sources in Context. It will be led by the IHGS Director of Education, Les Mitchinson, accompanied by fellow tutors Ann Ballard and Lucy Browne. The cost is £50 per person.’
