Our Toastmaster PR conducted the meeting in his usual warm and embracing manner,
introductions were to the question: What have you regretted saying?
There was also lots of interesting fill-in material on the English language, punctuation etc.
We again had the pleasure of 4 guests last night, Norman Lanb, Sue Eastman, Helen and Louise. We hope they enjoyed the evening and look forward to seeing them again.
Norman Lamb enjoyed his visit to the club and said a few encouraging words before making his exit. Summing up our club he said ‘It’s fantastic, a great skill to develop’
For the invocation AP read the poem ‘Pictures in your Head’ by Iris Henderson
