A most memorable evening with a rollercoaster ride of emotions…
As it was the last meeting of GB’s presidency she was presented with a large bouquet
of flowers as a thank you for all the hard work that she has put in over the last 12 months
DL was our Toastmaster for the evening and steered the evening effortlessly with his mellifluous delivery.
Introductions were to the question: What do you hope to achieve in your life?
Prepared speeches were by LV, HC & DM
Best Evaluator award went to TH
Best Table Topic award went to DB
There was an equal tie for Best Speech and the award went to:
LV for her speech entitled: ‘If You Go Down to the Woods Today’ and
HC for her speech entitled: ‘Mr Edwards’
‘Hoi Polloi’ was the chosen word from the Grammarian CLW
Tables Topics master KB posed various questions on the theme of the Chelsea Flower Show & Wimbledon such as:
If you were a Press Photographer would you choose Dame Helen Mirren or Joanna Lumley?
Should Garden Gnomes be allowed at the Chelsea Flower Show?
What other uses could the recycled Chelsea Flower Show tent be put to?
Can you justify £13,500 for tickets to Wimbledon?
Do you think noisy behaviour on court is acceptable?
Wilderness or formal garden – which camp are you in?
And lastly a special mention to KD who is having a break for a while to pursue other projects – we will miss her and look forward to seeing her back again soon.
