Name & Location:Mr Malcolm  WALKERYork
Contect & Website:
w: No Website
Subjects:Malcolm is a member of the Association Of Voluntary Guides to the City & a Minster Guide most but not all have a local flavour:
1) "THE IRISH IN YORK": Mainly about the influx of starving Irish after the Potato Famine of the 1840's & the part played by the York Quaker Families in alleviating their sufferings both in Ireland & in York.
2) "THE TUKES OF YORK": I became fascinated by the most important of the above families & this talk is a spin off. They were responsible for educating girls to the same standard as boys (The Mount) the first humane mental Institution (The Retreat) & without them there would have been no "Rowntrees".
3) "The ARCHBISHOPS OF YORK" a rather satirical swipe at the second prelate in the C.of E.
4) "GRANDMAS, GRAYS & GUIDE" a look back to Victorian & Edwardian York & W.W.s 1 & 2 - partly from my family's perspective.
5) "A HISTORY OF PRINTING IN YORK" I cover all printing in York but with special emphasis on where I worked - Ben Johnsons.
6) "THE WORLD OF WALTER BRIERLEY" - architect of York. To quote Betjeman, "He lived before ugliness in architecture became compulsory".
7) "THE STATUS OF WOMEN" There are no specific York connections. I prepared it for the centenary of women getting the limited vote in 1918.
8) A look at Seebohm Rowntree's book "POVERTY A STUDY OF TOWN LIFE". It was a survey of the conditions of the people of York in 1900: said to be the most important social document of the C20. The talk also looks at the relevance of that survey with conditions today.
9) This Talk is more or less a "Virtual" version of the Tour I take tourists on around the City in my capacity as a guide.

Subjects:It's Christmas!
Christmas presentation of readings, mostly a range of poetry with a little prose. I offer a reading of Christmas poems which reflect the diverse nature of that festive period from the religious to the whimsical, recognising its deep significance to Christians and its importance to families, especially children, as I consider Christmas from different viewpoints.

Wilfred Owen: the man and his poetry
War is one of the most passionate of subjects and rightly, therefore, a frequent subject of poetry. World War 1 is arguably the most frequently recorded conflict and Wilfred Owen is probably the best known of the war poets. She offers a reading of a selection of his work with some insight into his life.

Tales from the Schoolroom
We have all sat in the classroom and memories are varied but I take a journey through 39 years of teaching, reflecting on children I have met and incidents I remember. Sometimes humorous, sometimes not, I quickly realised that the title teacher is not always accurate as I have learned as much as I have ever taught.

Subject Areas:WW2 History, Local History
Name & Location:Mr Jeremy  PICKARDYork
Contect & Website:
w: No Website
Subjects:Young Voices from WW2.

This talk is based on readings from some of the 1200 surviving letters between two young people caught up in WW2. They were teenage lovers in 1939 and young parents by the time Stan was demobbed in 1946.

The letters are linked by a narrative from their son, Jeremy Pickard, who fills in some of the history (personal, social and naval) and also explains some of his reactions to discovering so many surprises about his parents as young people after the death of his mother, Chris.

The talk is illustrated by contemporary photographs and drawings.

It is unusual to be able to present the direct words of a young working class woman as experienced at the time, alongside those of her husband in the RNVR.

The emphasis of the talk can be 'tweaked' to fit the interest of the audience.

The talk is free (except for expenses) on condition that the published edition of the letters ("Stan and Chris in the War") can be sold to anybody who would like the full story.

Subject Areas:Science
Name & Location:Mr Melvyn  RUTTERMorley
Contect & Website:
w: No Website
Subjects:A critical view of 'man made climate change'. A study of the science showing an alternative view to the media hype.

Melvyn takes what Greenpeace say and measures the costs of what they advocate. For example, one calculation is that if 28M people buy electric cars this will require (some say) 60GW of electricity to provide at peak times. Which in broad terms equates to 15 Drax power stations at 4GW each. Notwithstanding the fact that Drax is far from a "green" operation, burning as it does timber from as far afield as the USA.

He considers the idea of CO2 being a "pollutant" which of course it isn't. Over eons of time global temperatures have been high, when CO2 levels were low, and the other way round.

CO2 is not even a major greenhouse gas. He show's this using temperatures on the moon, in the desert, and in the rainforest.

The idea that cows are bad news, it is hard to see how 23 million cattle produce more air pollution than 67 mill people.

And of course each human can produce 2.3 tons CO2 each year as we all breath out. Again 67M times this figure for the UK, clearly this has been ignored.

He looks at how the melting ice sheets were going to mean all the polar bears die, when in truth their numbers have more than doubled.

Away from the hypothesis, there are plenty of "real" issues that mankind can implement, as follows:

He show's how resource depletion, habitat and species destruction are caused by humans. But we can do something about this by living in balance with planet earth. Deforestation is awful, but divided by the total human population, we only need to plant 7 trees each, per year!!!

Many people feel fed up of the tv propaganda who shout for the removal of capitalism. The rich and poor divide is not good. But the system allows for consumerism which can affect real change. We can use this for stuff across the world.

He is happy to be grilled by his audience to defend his science, and he is not telling people what to think, or what to eat, and no one needs to glue themselves to anything.

Subjects:My name is Catherine King. I am a Medical Herbalist, holding a BSc (Hons) in Herbal Medicine. I own Icaros Herbals, a Herbal Medicine practice and deliver public talks and workshops on the subject of plant based medicine. An important role of a Medical Herbalist is to bring the wisdom and knowledge of herbalism back to its roots; the community. This knowledge, which was often held by woman and passed down through generations, has largely been lost, yet it is central to our folk history. Each culture and society have its own unique relationship to the plants around them, accessing their wisdom and medicine. My talks can be tailored to the interest of the audience; from the history and philosophy of herbal medicine, the use of plant-based medicine to treat specific conditions, the connection of herbs to our spiritual nature, Shamanic tradition and plants of the Amazon or the simple use of every day herbs. I would be happy to discuss what aspect of herbal medicine interests you and deliver a talk.

Subjects:Origins & Oddities of English Inn Signs
Few people realise that two thousand years of history is hanging over their heads, and that the humble pub sign can hold the key to a town's past. Pubs were rarely named by accident but were inspired by religion, royalty, heroes and the occasional scandal. This highly visual talk, with a quiz, explains how inns signs originate and traces their development from the Romans to the present day. Having attended this talk people will know how to read the signs and unlock the history of the inn and the travellers that took their rest and sustenance there.

Michael Astrop is the Northern Regional organiser for the Inn Sign Society and avid campaigner to retain old inns signs and original style depictions.
