In recent meetings members have treated us to a variety of fascinating subjects, reflecting their varied interests. Sarah Waters, in a Showpiece speech, talked about Energy Medicine – a new concept whereby we can literally ‘tap in’ to our body’s energy stores, awakening them to benefit our health, by tapping and massaging particular areas of the body. Sarah gave a wonderful demonstration and we all had a go.
Derek Eastwood then gave a speech about William Morris, later Lord Nuffield, founder of Morris Motors and Britain’s greatest philanthropist. He gave away £30million of his fortune in his lifetime, and Derek’s speech shone a light on a truly great man. Edward Taylor, a great lover of flight and aviation, followed with a speech informing us about the nesting habits of a variety of birds.
A Topics session led by Maggie Barlow encouraged members to digress from a subject, rather than stick to it, to gain experience of using a difficult subject to springboard onto an easier one. Gary Hayward took this furthest, going from washing-up liquid to trains in under three minutes, a fair achievement.
We welcome visitors and guests. We meet at Karter’s Café, Church Street, Lutterworth on Mondays c. twice a month. See our website LutterworthSpeakersClub.com for more details or ring Maggie Barlow on 01455 207774.
