Thur 19th Feb, Running Wild in a market town, Mark Crick, obvious, surprising and plain odd wildlife in Stamford

Thur 5th March, In Search of Daniel Lambert, more about Dan on the 200th anniversary of his death, P Massey

Thur 22nd Jan - Sickness & Health, a history of healthcare in Stamford, by Philippa Massey & Lea Rickard

Thur 5th Feb - A Little Learning, the provision of formal education in Stamford, orthodox & not so orthodox, Phil Massey



Kate:  Lots here of interest.  Wonder if the Health Care one will feature Johnsons Chemist of which we were all so fond? Or give us some more insight into Daniel Lambert - worth going to see and hear.

If Johnsons Chemists are mentioned in the talks; hope their own "Stanfords patent Linctus" is not forgotten!  Well remember scores of bottles lined up in the shop.  A cure-all if ever there was one, pleasant to taste and quite addictive.  Mind you dont know what was in it and whether if, in fact, it did you any real good?

Kate:  Anyone remember or have experience of STAMFORD'S PATENT LINCTUS?.   Can't remember that one - that's why we like people to write in and remind us.  We remember those massive display bottles of coloured liquids - blue and red??
