FODC Collects a Cheque from the last meeting of Darwen Civic Society

The Friends of Darwen Cemetery were one
of several local voluntary groups who received cheques at the final winding up
of Darwen Civic Society after 50 years.

Diane Davies received a cheque for £250.00 from the Civic Society chairman Sally Haworth.

The occasion also marked the launch of the Friends of Darwen Library’s book on the life and times of Darwen artist James H Morton who was killed in the closing days of the Great War.

The book was edited by Harold Heys who is also pictured.
