The Anglo Zulu War: The Battle of Rorke’s Drift
The lecture will take place in the Queens Hall, Hexham at 7.30pm
Following his sell-out talk last year on Scott and Shackleton, Rob Caskie, a South African, renowned internationally for his lectures, will give a balanced account of this famous battle. His passion and enthusiasm for his subject will make for an electrifying narrative.

The Battle of Rorke’s Drift took place on 22 January 1879 during the Zulu War in South Africa at the Mission and Supply Station of Rorke’s Drift. During the battle, some 179 British soldiers held off and defeated a force of over 4,500 Zulu warriors.
Immortalised by the classic movie Zulu, this remarkable battle saw the award of 11 Victoria Crosses, the largest number of VC’s awarded for a single action in history.
Tickets: £12.50 / £8.00 (students), including a drink with Rob following his lecture, are available from Brian Massey 01434 673413

We are delighted to inform you that at the Board meeting of the 7th of January 2014 the Board unanimously accepted and approved proposals for the establishment of a pre-bereavement Family Support Service. This will complement our current services and expand the range of services we are able to offer the people of Hexham and Tynedale.
The service will initially be developed as a one year pilot and will be subject to review and Board consideration about how we then take the service forward beyond the pilot year. We are confident that this is a welcome development.
We are pleased that the Rev. Janet Jackson has accepted the post of Lead for Family Support Services and will lead the development, implementation and review of this service.
Tynedale Hospice at Home is a local charity based in Hexham covering the wider community of Tynedale and West Northumberland. Unlike many traditional hospices, we do not have in-patient beds and take our care to those who need it, in a place of their choice. This enables people, with a life-limiting illness, to be cared for in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by family and friends, at one of the most difficult times of life.
In offering a range of free services to all those in Tynedale who need our care, support, help and advice as their illness progresses and lives draw to a close, our professionally trained staff and volunteers bring their skills and hands-on care to support those who choose to be cared for at home. Each patient and family is treated as an individual with specific needs. We offer care, bereavement services, family support and hospital transport using nurses, support workers and volunteers.
Respect – a confidential service for each individual and their circumstances
Dignity – for those who are dying and their families
Professionalism – our staff and volunteers are trained to give high quality end of life care
