TALKS WITH COFFEE AND CAKE
A regular programme of meetings takes place on the last Thursday of most months. This is your opportunity to hear an interesting talk with the added incentive of a cup of coffee and a slice of delicious home-made cake. The talks are open to all (you don’t need to be a member) and cost just £3 per person. Unless otherwise stated, meetings are held at St Joseph’s Hall in Cromer Road. Coffee is served from 10.15, with the talk beginning at about 10.30 and lasting about 45 to 60 minutes.
There is no meeting in August as the Art Exhibition is then running.
28th September – Dr Tom Williamson, the acknowledged expert on this subject from the University of East Anglia, will talk about Norfolk Landscape Archaeology
26th October – Dr Tom Pestell will describe the Norwich Castle Restoration Project after which visitors will be able to see the interior of the keep much as it was when the castle was a royal stronghold.
30th November – Gary Italiander will describe the life and work of Larry Adler (1914 – 2001), the renowned player of the harmonica.
There is no meeting in December as it coincides with the Christmas/New Year period, but see details of the Christmas Lunch below.
In September 2016 the Society arranged a sailing on the Lucy Lavers lifeboat based at Wells-next-the-Sea. Ten of our members and friends (the maximum which can be accommodated) went out on the water. A further sailing was arranged for 5th July. This was also fully booked and was enjoyed by all.
The Society’s 2017 art exhibition will return to the Masonic Hall, Cromer Road (opposite the town’s main public car park and also ideally situated for the railway stations and bus stops).
It will be open to the public daily from Friday 18th to Tuesday 29th August between 10.30am and 5.30pm.
This year’s Christmas lunch will be on Sunday 3rd December and will again be held at the Pepperpot Restaurant, West Runton. Further details to be announced later.
