Star date: 3rd September 2017

EX PUPILS OF RUTH FROW SOUGHT FOR THIRTY YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF SALFORD LIBRARY

November will see the thirtieth anniversary of Salford Working Class Movement Library and there will be a special event to celebrate founders Ruth and Eddie Frow. Ruth was a teacher in Ardwick and Wythenshawe, and organisers are trying to trace ex-pupils of hers to take part in the event.

Full details here...


Through the Working Class Movement Library, Ruth Frow taught many people many things. A co-founder of the Library, along with husband Eddie, she was instrumental in helping the Salford Star when it was first published and was always there for anyone, giving advice and helping people find documents, books and photos held in the archives of the unique building.

November marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Working Class Movement Library moving into Jubilee House on The Crescent in Salford, and as part of the anniversary, on 11th November, there's going to be an event to recognise the contribution of Ruth and Eddie Frow.

As well as building the incredible archive of the Library, Ruth was also previously a teacher in schools in Ardwick and Wythenshawe from the 1950s to 1970s, and organisers are trying to trace ex-pupils who were taught by Ruth, to take part in the celebrations.

If you were one of Ruth's pupils and have fond memories of her as your teacher, please contact Bernadette Hyland at lipsticksocialist636@gmail.com or drop her a line c/o Working Class Movement Library, The Crescent, Salford, M5 4WX
