Join us at Widnes library for a fascinating evening with local historian Jean Bradburn. Jean worked as the local studies librarian in Halton libraries and following her retirement has pursued this interest and published books about Widnes and Runcorn. This talk will focus on her book ‘Widnes at Work’ which covers the varied industries in Widnes throughout the years with stories from those who worked in the varied factories. Jean researched her book by talking to Widnesians about their jobs across the years and collected oral histories which she will be sharing on the evening. A great evening for anyone who has fond memories of the ICI, the Crispy and the Gus!
