Well, the past few months have seen them enjoying some great meetings, as their correspondent reports:
The Orpen Memorial Hall was filled to capacity for our ‘Open Meeting’ held last November. Mr Furnival Jones from London talk was called ‘The Palace of Knightsbridge’ about his 41 years as an employee at Harrods. He delighted his audience with his anecdotes about eccentric clients and their unusual requests as manager of the food hall.
With inclement weather our Christmas party was postponed and we enjoyed a New Year Party instead. With the aid of a memory stick and the hall screen our last two years’ events brought back happy memories of our various achievements and outings.
On April 3rd we are welcoming Edinburgh Woollen Mill with their ‘Fashion Show’. This will be an Open Meeting so more details available from our secretary or president.
Visitors are welcome to attend a meeting free and enjoy a speaker and meet the members.
