Meeting 16th August

On another warm August evening our chair SR talked about hobbies and pastimes.
For the introductions we were asked ‘what do you make or do in your spare time?’

For our fill-in material we were told of various ‘courses’ available at Assington Mill
in Suffolk.

We had the pleasure of a visit from our guest speaker EH who talked about
his recent visit to Auschwitz. A very sombre and thought provoking speech…

Because his weight exceeds his lift
– I’m glad I’m not a scientist!
