7 Jan 2019 1st Monthly Meeting -The Quiz

The New Year starts with the quiz. Please arrive in good time as we have to make a prompt start at 2pm. We are limited to the numbers we can accommodate around the tables so we’ll operate a first come, first served system.

Doors open at The Richard Mayo Hall for the monthly meeting at 1.30 with the talk beginning at 2.00. It is useful to arrive early as the talks are popular and on a few occasions we have had to refuse entry as we are over the 145 hall limit.

There is a charge of £1.00 for entry for members  which includes tea and biscuit at the end of the talk.

5th Nov Monthly Meeting – The Unknown Warrior 100 Years after WW1

5th November: It’s remembrance time, and 100 years after the end of the First World War we focus on the concept and realisation of the grave of the Unknown Warrior, which is in Westminster Abbey. Who had the idea, how it was approved and organised and how the body was selected and transported. The speaker does not charge a fee and we will be giving a donation to the charity of his choice. Perhaps people would like to wear their poppies at this meeting.
