The Temperance Movement in Victorian England
Castlereagh Boutique Hotel. 169 - 171 Castlereagh St Sydney

In November 1834 Branwell Brontë was a founding member of the Haworth Temperance Society and at this meeting he was appointed secretary. However after the break-up of his affair with Mrs Robinson he became heavily dependent on alcohol and this contributed to his early death. Carolyn, a senior member of the Salvation Army, will give a brief history of the ‘Sally’s” and will explain where this organisation fitted into the Temperance movement in Victorian England.
