September sees the start of our new season when we look forward to getting to know our newer members, meeting speakers from other local clubs, taking part in the various competitions throughout the year, and having a lot of fun.
Ordinary club nights see a range of speeches, readings, and impromptu topics delivered by our regular members. New people sometimes ask what they should speak about – well, the answer is anything, apart from the unholy trinity of sex, religion and politics! Our members have a wide range of interests and experiences, indeed passions, from trains to the marine environment through gardening, dancing, and F1 – we’re always learning something new. But we’re not all about leisure – work or other formal presentations can be given, for advice and constructive feedback.
The first competition is the Area ‘Chatterbox’ at the end of September, a night out where teams from the four local clubs try to out-speak each other. This year the theme is ‘Coach and Horses’ and our team will attempt, in the 10 minutes available, to come up with the best interpretation and presentation. Imagination and humour are the key things that have brought us success in the last four years of ‘Chatterbox” – no pressure, team!
We meet at Karter’s Café, 20 Church Street, Lutterworth, 7.30 – 9.30 pm 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month, September to May. A warm welcome is assured to anyone who drops in. For more details, ring Maggie Barlow on 01455 207774 or visit our website http://www.LutterworthSpeakersClub.com.
