Photos above our fascinating talk on 4th October about the history of Sulgrave manor near Banbury and its link to George Washington. The talk was given without a script, without a microphone and without visual aids other than the splendid Tudor costume worn by the speaker - Laurence Washington, Lord of the manor of Sulgrave and Stuchbury (aka Martin Sirot-Smith). He held the audience spellbound with the story spanning the Middle Ages to modern times.
Change of Speaker
Graham Laurie who was to give the talk "Roald Dahl's War" this coming Wednesday (18th October), at Hatfield, has had to cancel (his wife has had a fall and fractured 2 bones in her back). Hopefully Graham will be able to deliver this talk to us later next year.
Vic Botterill who has spoken to us many times before, has agreed to step in at short notice. His talk will be entitled: Moments, Memory and Magic.
Jean has been contacted by Gary from the BBC about a factual programme that they are making called "Holding back the Years". They have approached us with a view to
finding a volunteer to take part in a feature about driving as one gets older. Gary is currently working on a feature which explores the idea of losing confidence/being more apprehensive as a driver as one gets older. He will be working with a
group called IAM Roadsmart who help people in this situation by offering what they call Mature Driver Reviews – an hour long drive with an assessor who provides advice on any skills which the driver may need to brush up on. The filming of this would probably take about 2 hours, in the week commencing 23rd October.
Interested? Please contact Jean for more information.
