    FHS Council cordially invites you to join us for a lecture at our other new venue!
    Following our very successful meeting at Mold last month (our first since the start
    of the pandemic) our second live meeting will be held at 2.30pm on Saturday 25th
    June at St Peter's Church, Rosehill, Holywell, CH8 7TL.
    The speaker will be Ken Brassil, who will talk about "Charles Darwin in North Wales".
    Before setting off on his 5 year round the world voyage on HMS Beagle, Darwin
    made geological tours of North Wales in the summer of 1831.
    Kenneth, a native of north Wales, was a Field Officer for the Clwyd Powys
    Archaeological Trust in the 1980s. From the 1990’s he was a Learning Officer for
    Archaeology and History at the Museum of Wales in Cardiff for 25 years. Now
    retired, he lives in Penrhyndeudraeth.

    This church has excellent facilities, including parking and easy disabled access. If
    you don’t already know the church, go into the centre of Holywell, round the one-way system in front of the Victoria Hotel and the bus station. Keep in the right hand lane, then turn into Pen-Y-Maes Road. Turn into Rosehill by keeping Lidl on your right.
