On Saturday 22nd November, 2014, six members of our Men’s Group went off to visit the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool.
It is situated in the Maritime Museum and is well worth a visit. Although historical slavery was abolished many years ago, it was interesting and sad to see how poorly the slaves were treated and to learn about the legacy left – which still impacts many lives around the world to this day.
Those attending were Karl Stanfield, Terry Strong, Antony Armett, John Packard, Mike Tewkesbury and Will Graham. We had a lovely lunch in the museum restaurant. Antony and Terry then had a look at the Titanic exhibition. What an engineering feat that was, unfortunately ending in tragedy.
Entry is free to the museum, so a good day was had, all for the cost of a lunch.
