The story of Clarks of Street was the subject of the talk at this month's meeting of Langport and Curry Rivel Probus club.
Clark's own archivist, Dr Tim Crumplin, presented a fascinating insight into how Cyrus and James Clark started a business making rugs and brown peters and from then how Clarks, and the village of Street developed, including explaining the what, and why of how many of Street's best buildings came about.
Probus is a friendly mixed club for retired and semi retired business, professional and other people who enjoy a monthly get together with an interesting talk, a nice lunch, and the occasional trip out.
We're always happy to meet new members, so if this sounds interesting to you give us a go!. Have a look at our web site at www.langportandcurryprobus.btck.co.uk or give our Secretary, Paul Crocker, a ring on 01458 252 545 for more information.
