Gain some knowledge
Kirkby SciBar’s next talk is ‘Nanomedicine – can small particles solve big problems?’ which will be with Marco Siccardi who is a senior lecturer in Pharmacology at University of Liverpool.
Marco Siccardi will discuss nanomedicine which is an emerging field involving the use of particles of a millionth of the size of a football which can be designed to reach specific areas of the body such as tumours. Nanosized materials may be used by an endless list of technological platforms in the future and can provide exciting opportunities to revolutionise the diagnosis and treatment of several diseases.
If you’re interested in learning more, the talk will be on Tuesday 19 September from 6.45pm to 9pm at Holy Angels Club, Sydney Powell Avenue, Kirkby L32 0TP
Visit Knowsley Hall
The beautiful Knowsley Hall will have its doors open to the public for a week this October.
The theme of the special exhibition of paintings from the Derby Collection is By Land and Sea. At the exhibition, you can see a selection of pictures that visitors don’t usually have the opportunity to see.
The display intends to showcase some of the finest landscapes, still lifes and marine paintings in the collection. You will also be able to see beautiful flower and landscape pieces by talented artists.
The open week is a great opportunity for anyone interested in art or anyone who would like to tour one of Merseyside’s most historic country houses.
The doors to Knowsley Hall are open to the public from Monday 2 October to Friday 6 October.
The price to visit is £15 which includes a guided tour of the hall and tea, coffee and biscuits.
Visit Knowsley Hall’s website for more information.
Remember a loved one
The Whiston Initiative in Cultural Heritage (W.I.C.H) group will be at Foxes Bank Cemetery on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October to plant red tulip bulbs in a beautiful heart-shaped flower bed.
The idea is to plant the tulips in memory of a loved one and to raise money for W.I.C.H’s long anticipated memorial building at the cemetery.
When the memorial building is complete, it will feature many of the original features from the demolished Victorian workhouse chapel at Whiston Hospital including stained glass windows and stone work.
The memorial building will provide somewhere to visitors to reflect and enjoy a heritage exhibition that is planning to be featured there. Visitors will also be able to sign and look through a computerised book of remembrance.
If you’d like to remember a loved one and support W.I.C.H, come along to Knowsley Cemetery, Fox’s Bank Lane, Whiston on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October between 10am and 3pm. Bulbs are £1 each.
