Tonight we have a talk by Ian McKay on a most interesting character…..   A Biography…..

General Scarlett was in command of the Heavy Brigade in the Crimean War, when the famous Charge of the Light Brigade took place. He married a girl from Burnley and settled there, becoming a successful businessman. He was well- known, well-respected and well-liked. A major benefactor of the town, he lived in an imposing house – Bank Hall – suited to a retired general, until he died in 1871.

Come along and hear the tale…..

(Burnley FC was formed in 1882).

The event will be held at  our usual meeting place: the REA Scandinavia Trust Meeting Room at Cleckheaton.

Take the M62 Motorway to Junction 26, or the M606 to Junction 1, to arrive at the roundabout beneath the M62 Motorway.

Take the A638 Bradford Road in the main direction of Dewsbury (also towards Cleckheaton and Heckmondwike).

After the VW Garage, come to a set of Traffic Lights. Turn Left onto Hunsworth Lane and after only 50 metres turn left into Kelloe Street. The club is signed ‘REA Scandinavia Trust’.

There is a small car park with overspill parking on spare land adjacent to the clubhouse. (Please do not park on any clearly marked Private Property.)

We look forward to seeing you….
