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.
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.
25th January – Martin Fox MBE, retired auctioneer will give a talk entitled Condoms to Coffins. Brighten up a dull time of year with this humorous talk.
22nd February – Go under water with Rob Spray who will return to descibe and illustrate his exploits Diving off the Farne Islands.
22nd March – Dr Kristin Waeber talks about The Deer of Thetford Forest. (Please note this is not as is usual the last Thursday of the month as the hall is not available on that day.)
26th April – Arthur Barrett tells us all about Gilbert and Sullivan.
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.
This year’s Christmas lunch will be on Sunday 3rd December, 12.30 for 1 pm and will again be held at the Pepperpot Restaurant, West Runton. Bookings from members and friends at £25 per head are currently being taken. If interested in going please telephone Maureen Cooper on 01263 822156 or email our Secretary (see Contact Us page).
