As a pre-cursor for this very important celebration, trustee Christine Dennis arranged a presentation at our usual meeting place, Chadderton Library, on 3rd November 2005. Our Town Crier announced the presentation of a Edwardian Tankard for Michael Lawson, Secretary, and an etched 1920's water jug to Mark Johnson, Chairman in appreciation of the hard work and commitment to Chadderton and the Society. Christine Dennis said: "The Society's existence is due to the dedication of Michael and Mark. and their voluntary contributions to the preservation and promotion of Chadderton have made a huge difference to the community."
