Our Chair last night was DM, and in his usual relaxed form steered us through another enjoyable evening peppered with humour. The current President SR stands down from the end of May and DM will take over as the new President of the club.
It was the last meeting for our members KB and PB who are soon to move to the Lake District. TH gave them a splendid verbal send off and presented them with a book and a bottle of fizzy to enjoy. We will all miss them very much and wish them well for the future.
We had the pleasure of our guest JW, we hope he enjoyed the evening and look forward to seeing him again soon.
Introductions were to the question: What will change for you this year?
For our inspiration, GS read Desiderata by Max Max Ehrmann and another self-penned poem.
