Despite the absence of the Secretary, the Treasurer, a Vice-President, and several members, the October meeting went very well.  The President gamely filled several posts, and other committee members rallied round to run the Raffle and the Competition, whilst ensuring that the Register was kept up to date.

The speaker was Kate Cole who talked about the witches of Elizabethan England.  Essex held a surprisingly high number of witches, many of whom came to no good.

In keeping with the general theme of witchery, the competition was for a Hallowe'en item. The winning entry, a very large pumpkin, came from Elaine Ochiltree (picture below).
