Recent Events

19th September – our outing to the Houses of Parliament was very interesting. The guide gave us an insight into the history and current running and protocol of both houses and reasons why long established procedures are followed. The architecture, rebuilding and art were explained. We had free time at Windsor on the way back.

9th October – a talk was to be given by Jon King on Auctioneering and Valuation, but we discovered that his company had ceased trading so his visit was cancelled. Our entertainment was funny stories and music given by George Fleming. It was immensely enjoyed by members. Our thanks to George for stepping in at relatively short notice.

Future Events
Tuesday 13 November – 2.00pm, Village Hall. A talk will be given by Alan Fletcher on “Guide dogs for the blind”
Tuesday 11th December – Christmas lunch at the Barrington Arms Hotel, 12 noon. Entertainment by Ken & Steve. Places are limited to 50 club members so if you have not booked your place yet you may be disappointed.
