Lighting up the Past with Sedgley Local History Society

Sedgley residents can shine a light into an age before low-energy lightbulbs and fused plugs when they attend another fascinating talk from Sedley Local History Society.

The next meeting of the Society takes place on Thursday, May 10 at 7:30 pm in St. Andrew’s Church, Bilston Street, Sedgley

After a short Annual General Meeting, there will be a talk, called Lighting up the Past, where John Hughes, a retired installation inspector with the Midland Electricity Board and stalwart of the Black Country Memories Club, will be reminiscing about the days when valves and fuse wire were an essential part of the electricity supply in many homes.

Illuminating History

John is an avid collector of old electrical equipment and period photographs and will be displaying some illuminating relics of electrical technology from years gone by.

As usual, visitors are invited to come along.  Individual talks cost £1. Visit the society’s website for more information.
