Syresham History Society is hosting an amusing talk by Derek Batten entitled Women of the Wild West on Tuesday, January 6.

The women needed to be resourceful to cope with the harsh conditions, lawlessness and lack of amenities. They spent their time spinning, weaving, raising children and warding off Indian attacks. Non members are welcome at the event, at 7.30pm in the village hall.
