Taking us into its 23rd year, the latest edition of Waterside Voice (Winter 2015/2016) is now on sale.

In ‘Memories of Welch Margetsons’ John McCormack traces the history of a great factory.

Helen Henderson’s article, ‘The Heart in the Park’, brings us up to date with a Waterside landmark.

We trace the history of Ireland’s premier learning disability drama company ‘Lilliput Theatre Company’.

John Lynch asks ‘Whatever Became of Christmas Rhymers?’ while Gerard Harvey tells us why we should join his knowledgeable and interesting ‘Foyle Family History Society’.

Jim Hunter reveals fascinating facts in his ‘Christmas Through Europe’.

‘Voices’ also begins a new series ‘School Pictures from the Past’ beginning with Broadbridge Primary School.
