Lutterworth Speakers Club – Victory once again!

4th Year Winners of Chatterbox

Chatterbox Winners 2016

Congratulations to our team who ensured victory for the club, for the fourth year in a row, in the Area ‘Chatterbox’ team-speaking competition.

Sarah Waters, David Hanger and Eileen Fox (l to r above) went to town with the theme of ‘Hare/Hair and Hounds’ with all manner of fascinating references – with lots of puns and jokes – from the notorious nudity in the stage musical ‘Hair’ to a tale of a hairy Afghan hound jumping out of an Aston Martin.  The highlight was perhaps the rendition by Eileen Fox, complete with Elvis-like swivels and hair-smoothing gestures, of ‘Hound Dog’. Opposing teams from Barwell and Market Harborough clubs also did extremely well and we had a very entertaining evening.

Back at the club Sarah engaged us all again with a speech about the many health-promoting aspects of lemons, and Allan Rimmer gave a fascinating talk about his season running an Alpine ski chalet with his wife.

We are a fun club with a serious purpose – to help people to improve their speaking skills.  Visitors can just drop in to the Indian Lounge, George Street, Lutterworth, 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month, 7.30 pm.
