We started the new season with a couple of very interesting speeches from two of our newer members.  Heather Moore’s first speech gave us a real insight into her life and times from childhood; how her interest in science developed, particularly in microbiology, and how, through hard work and dedication, she worked her way towards a PhD and a scientific job in Lutterworth.  Her gently humorous approach won us all over.

Derek Eastwood took us a little further afield – namely, to South Lincolnshire, a part of the country sidelined by more glamorous destinations but well worthy of exploration.  He enlightened us on the history, virtues and quirks of the various small towns and villages he and his wife explored recently, fascinating and amusing us in the process.

Our annual Area ‘Chatter Box’ competition is coming up soon, and Maggie Barlow led a Topics session to generate ideas on this year’s theme of Time and Space.  Plenty were forthcoming and the speaking team have lots to choose from and develop into a great presentation. Club pride and a wooden ‘Chatter Box’ are at stake!

We meet 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month.  If you are interested in seeing us in action, please come along to Karter’s Café, 20, Church Street, Lutterworth, 7.30-9.30pm.  Guests and visitors are very welcome. For further information ring Allan Rimmer on 01455 324495 or see our website
