Beatrice: The Cadbury Heiress by Fiona Joseph

Beatrice

Beatrice Cadbury, daughter of the world-famous chocolate empire, grew up with all the privileges: a fine mansion with servants, a well-rounded education and the chance to travel the world and see all its glories. But being a 'have' in a world of 'have-nots' was troubling, and in 1920 she decided to 'give back' all the Cadbury shares she had inherited to the Bournville factory workers... with unexpected consequences.

Join Beatrice on her astonishing journey from respectable Quaker girl to bold anti-capitalist and peace activist, as she and her Dutch husband, Kees Boeke, relentlessly pursued their vision of a fairer and more equal society.

***************

Tea and coffee will be available.

For our 12th June meeting we have Palaeography by Member Jenny Townshend - Note the date in your diary.

BMSGH has been restyled as Midland Ancestors. The new name reflects the changing needs in the family history market and is part of a wide-ranging revamp to create a family history society for the 21st century. See the new Midland Ancestors website, www.midland-ancestors.uk for further information.

Bromsgrove Branch will now be known as the Bromsgrove Family History Group within Midland Ancestors. It will continue to cover the ancient market town of Bromsgrove and surrounding areas of north Worcestershire, from Kidderminster to Kings Norton and Redditch. The web address remains unchanged for the time being as www.bromsgrovebmsgh.co.uk. The site will also continue to co-host the Midland Ancestors' Stourbridge Family History Group.
