Local Historian Stephen Flinders joined Long Eaton Rotary Club at their evening meeting to entertain the members with his talk on “Owd Ilson”. Stephen’s talk contained many familiar places and also some of the local characters of the past and the present. Past President Geoff Birkin, who had attended school in Ilkeston, thanked Steepen for returning to entertain the members with his historical knowledge of the area and asked members to show their appreciation in the usual manner.
