Our Toastmaster on this wet November evening was GB.
As we were to have Three Icebreaker Speeches from new members (possibly a club first), the cleverly chosen theme for the evening was – Ice
Introductions were to the question: What would you sculpt out of ice?
A warm welcome to our returning guest TW, we hope she enjoyed the evening
The Invocation was about ’empathy’ by DOT
‘Comfort’ was the word chosen by the Grammarian DB
Prepared speeches were by JLD, PB & JO
The best speech award went to JO for her Icebreaker speech
entitled ‘Determined – that’s me’
Table Topics Master KB used the clever theme of the board game Monopoly
to pose various questions including:
You have recently travelled via Fenchurch Street to visit the WW1 poppy display at
the Tower of London. How did it make you feel?
Fleet Street – How would you improve Sir Bob Geldof’s presentation skills?
Piccadily – Who would you take for afternoon tea at the Ritz and why?
Paddington – Marmalade sandwiches – love them or hate them?
Community Chest – You have won £200 – what would you spend it on?
Liverpool Street Station – You visit the boat show at Earl’s Court, if money
was no object which boat would you buy and why?
Trafalgar Square – Pigeons or no pigeons?
Best Table Topic award went to CAW
Best Evaluator award went to AB (Table Topics)
