'A Hotbed of Communist Activity' - a talk by Dr Rob David

The Bobbin Mill Village Hall, Howtown - Thursday 15th August 5.30pm

In June 1940 two prominent women communists, recently dismissed from their jobs in London for their political activities, arrived in Howtown pursued by MI5 and the Shap and Caldbeck police. Did events in Howtown threaten national security? An interesting story unfolds and this lecture reveals all, or at least as much as MI5 has made public!

Cold drinks available, donations to village hall fund.
