On a hot July evening our suitably attired chair PR used the theme of Wimbledon for our
tennis flavoured meeting and introductions were to the question:
‘If you won £2.2M – what would you do with it?
For our invocation GS read not only a heart-warming poem by Helen Steiner Rice but also
a poem of her own.
Duties: Timer – TH, Ah Counter – SR
Wordmaster – DM with the word ‘oxymoron’
The prepared speeches were as follows:
JR with ‘Time and Distance’ evaluated by CLW
PB with ‘More than a walk in the Park’ evaluated by PR
CLW with ‘It makes you think’ evaluated by PB
Our Topics Master DM posed various random questions including:
Who has inspired you in your life?
What is the one thing you really want to do?
Where would you like to be or go?
When and what makes you feel peaceful?
What makes you smile?
How much of the £2.2M would you give away?
If you have any spare time, how do you use it?
What annoys you more than anything else?
