Dear Member, Researcher or Contact,
We are, as normal, having our month end research meeting this Saturday at The Core Library, Solihull.
It will be tighter affair, in terms of time, as we are manning a table and taking full group involvement in the Windrush Ball event to be held in the evening in Birmingham – a project that the group has taken an involvement in setting up.
As such we expect to be ending the session promptly for a 4.15pm departure. So your arrival at 1pm would be mutually beneficial.
Just to remind you of the resources at Solihull –
Hope you are motivated to come along and do some of your own research. If so we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
