Our thanks to Diana and Alan Longshaw for hosting this year’s Summer lunch in their garden.
Kate Picton’s report is here.

17th June saw 33 of us off to Oswestry for the week, to discover the Welsh Marches. Many thanks to our expert guide, Jonathan Pegler.

We had an excellent turnout for our 2019 AGM. Members were entertained not only by Ann Tennant single-handedly providing a lovely meal for 50, but also by Bertie Pearce, who combined a talk about the use of visual deception in art through the ages with magic tricks, assisted by members of the audience.

 

This year our Spring Walk included a viewing of the medieval church paintings in Little Missenden as well as our usual walk in the hills and pub lunch. Our thanks to Gwyndaf and Janet John for arranging the trip.

Our 2019 St David’s Day Dinner was on Friday March 1st at Harewood Downs Golf Club with speaker Tudor Wyn Owen, a keen aviator, and known as the ‘flying lawyer, he recently retired as a Circuit Judge in London.

 

Burn’s Night (25th January) saw Jonathan Pegler host another of his cryptic Quiz Evenings. Six teams of six battled it out, the only respite being the fish and chips supper. Amongst other topics, we were tested on our knowledge of old advertising slogans and the First World War. At the end of the evening, the winners were announced and questions were asked – was it a fix?

Sunday 9th December saw us in Christmas mood, with carols and nibbles at Bill & Sue Jones’s home.

 

 

 

On 20th September, Jonathan Pegler led a tour around the sites of Bristol. Click here to see the full report.

 

 

We were lucky with the weather for our Annual Golf Day on 31st August. Thanks to Chris Thomas and Pam Britton for organising it and to Rob Britton for the report.

 

On 6th August we set off for summer’s evening of horse racing at the Royal Windsor Racecourse.

 

Once again we were blessed with glorious weather for our Summer Lunch on 1st July – kindly hosted by Peter and Pat Chapman with a report by Bob Ford.

 

We’ve also added some photographs of the members of the committee, so that you can see who everyone is – click here.
