Event description

Description

Local Historian Georgina Green will talk about the last resident of Valentines Mansion, Mrs Sarah Ingleby. Mrs Ingleby was a very good example of the best kind of Victorian Christian philanthropy. Her life spanned 1823 - 1906 (Queen Victoria lived from 1819 to 1901) but it was one of comfort rather than privilege. She did her best to help those less fortunate, often in private, but also opening her house and gardens for charitable causes. Come and find out about this remarkable lady.

This event celebrates Women’s History Month and will take place in the Heritage Centre on the 2nd floor of the Library.
