The History of Mather & Platt Update

17 February 2016

Dear All,

I am writing to you to ask if you could update your members at your next meeting that an important change has been made to the website. Following word-of-mouth recommendations from various Historical Societies regarding my Presentation on The History of Mather & Platt, I have spent the past three years travelling to give my presentation throughout the North West travelling as far as Frodsham and Runcorn.

I would like to express my sincere thanks on behalf of the Mather & Platt Long Service Association to all who attended my presentation. I would be very grateful if you could show the attached leaflet at your next meeting to any of your members who were unable to attend my presentation due to other commitments. I am pleased to report that we now have only 200 copies of our book remaining.

The M & P LSA committee have decided that the cost of a reprint is far too expensive.

Therefore, they have decided to reduce the price of the remaining books to the bargain price of £5.00. As Aldi likes to say, ‘Once they have gone… they are definitely gone.

Best Regards

Ken Bishop
