Doreen Robinson and The Burnage Young Wives

Doreen Robinson moved to Burnage after getting married. When she had her children she, and other young women, decided to start a group where they could invite speakers and undertake workshops. They even hosted a fashion show, the leaflet is shown here in the video, perhaps you recognise one of the names?

Perhaps you have your own Burnage story to tell? We would love to hear from you.
