Todays meeting : 14th December 2011

It was a very chilly day, but despite the weather loads of ladies had ventured out and the hall was full to brimming for the afternoons meeting.
Our speakers today were Mr Bryan and Mrs Margaret Tester who gave us a really beautiful view into the world of audio visuals or as Bryan put it 'Photos to music'. The pair are amateur photographers who make their own AV's using their own photos or from pictures found in books or on the internet.
Bryan and Margaret had prepared some sequences on a variety of subjects including; Leonardslee Lakes and gardens, Cats, VE Memorial Day, The Alhambra Granada, Staffordshire Arboretum, Paris, The Seaside, Granddad and finally a Christmas message. Each series of photographs were put to the some very beautiful and appropriate music.
All in all a beautiful afternoon viewing this photo videos.

As this is the last meeting before Christmas, we all enjoyed a warm mince pie with our cup of tea. Mmmm yummy!!

The vote of thanks was given by Joan Alderton and the flowers were provided by Christine Dellow.
The competition was a handmade Christmas card. All entries were absolutely superb.

Next meeting:
January 11th 2012 : The talk is 'From Russia with love' by Mrs M Rogers.
The competition is- A holiday memento.

We wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year!
