July meeting

Despite heat, rain and holidays, twenty-nine members made it to the July meeting.  They heard a very entertaining talk from Mr Brian Carline entitled An Amusing Account of Life in our Schools.  As well as being a teacher (now retired), Mr Carline had been a comedian in his early days and that grounding clearly influenced his fund of tales from the classroom, not to mention his excellent delivery.

Maintaining the classroom theme, the competition was for a school memento.  Entries ranged from items of school uniform to reports, certificates, photographs and prizes.  Mr Carline judged the competition and chose a school photograph, entered by Christine Dellow, as the winner (pictures above right and below).

After tea came the presentation of Birthday flowers, the drawing of the raffle, and the National Anthem.
