The Border Historical Society and its members have been at the forefront of celebrating local historic milestones and therefore of recognising the rich tapestry of our heritage. However, there is much more to be done to recognise the diversity of our community so that all of us can be proud of our roots.
Trevor Webster, a past Chairman of the Border Historical Society, will present the Mark Taylor Memorial Lecture on Tuesday 17 September 2019 at 19H30. He hopes that the talk will be interactive so that Society members and Friends of the East London Museum and members of the public will participate. He has been involved with some of the same schools as Mark Taylor, and so will try to cover the legacy of these institutions. He was also involved with Mark on projects of our Historical Society to recognise our local history.
Trevor Webster was brought up at the Healdtown Mission, was a teacher at Selborne College and a Headmaster for 21 years of his 42 years career in teaching. He and his wife, Ann, have retired to Hogsback where they enjoy visits of friends and family and the surprises and joy retirement can bring. Apart from park runs and gardening, he has had the privilege of writing a number of local histories.
At present Trevor is on the Boards of St Patrick’s Chapel, Probus, the Fort Beaufort Museum and the Hobbiton Association, as well as doing part-time teaching at a school in Alice.
