Guest Speaker: Bob Milner

The Joy of a Cinema

 

Our monthly meeting on Monday 20th May 2019 at St Stephens on the Cliffs
Guest Speaker was Bez Cooper on Being a Tiller Girl

Bez Cooper gave an enthralling talk to Civic Trust members and guests on her life as a Tiller Girl. She brought her days performing in such famous theatres as the London Palladium to vivid life with anecdotes and gestures and kept her audience spellbound.

The occasion was made all the more memorable by having the talk at St Stephen’s on the Cliffs, with its unique Actors Chapel. The floor of the Chapel is dedicated to the memory of Jennie Tiller.

Bez Cooper and Joan Humble, Chair of Blackpool Civic Trust, are pictured holding a brass plaque commemorating Miss Barbara Aitken, a key figure in the history of the Tiller Girls.

The next meeting of the Civic Trust is again being held at St Stephen’s on 17 June, 7pm. Bob Milner will be talking about ‘The Joy of a Cinema’.

New members are always welcome. For information about the Civic Trust and its many activities, speakers and events please see our webpage http://www.blackpoolcivictrust.org.uk/membership.html

Blackpool Civic Trust Commemorative Bench

The Civic Trust's 'Lest We Forget' commemorative bench has now been installed in the Fylde Memorial Arboretum, Moor Park Avenue. The bench has been installed on a purpose-made concrete base diametrically opposite the wooden entrance to the Burma Star Association area of the Arboretum. This is a very appropriate place.
