Representatives from the Liverpool Records Office and Liverpool and  the  South West Lancashire Family History Society will also be on hand with local history materials and to provide advice on research.

Councillor Wolfson said: “There is a lot of interest in local history, whether it is people checking up their family records or wanting to find out about the past of where they live. This event at the community cafe will give them an opportunity to talk to experts and get advice and information – as well as being entertained by our guest speaker.
