Change of Speaker for Wednesday 20th February.

The speaker we were expecting this Wednesday has had to cancel due to poor health. In his place, we are fortunately able to welcome Mr Jason Middleton, who will give a talk entitled "Pearls - a Famous Gem".

Jason Middleton has had a highly rewarding career in the jewellery industry, working as an international gemstone buyer for a respected jewellery company. He recently started his own company, supplying the jewellery market with loose and finished gemstones, specialising in pearls and semi-precious stones.

We’re going to do our bit for the environment and try to reduce, if not stop our use of plastic cups for Wednesday morning refreshments. From January 2019 please bring your own mug for your drink and take it home with you afterwards. This may take some getting used to for those serving refreshments, so please be patient. The drink will be free of charge for those bringing their own mugs. Should you forget to bring your own mug, for a while plastic cups will be provided for drinks, however these drinks will still be 20p each. Everyone is being encouraged to reduce plastic usage and waste, so do please try to help make this a success!

For a few weeks we are trialling a book swap on Wednesday mornings to see whether members would use this. Marion Cleveland is overseeing this, please contact her for any information about how it works.
