We hope you’re all staying safe, wearing your masks and keeping busy during this challenging time. Lutterworth Speakers Club had our first Zoom meeting of the lockdown on November 9th. Allan Rimmer gave us a great prescriptive speech helping us become more aware of the dangers of fake news. Prescriptive speeches are an opportunity to speak to a specific objective such as to persuade, entertain or inform the audience. Ruth Redmond gave us a great speech all about the Leicester University Engineering building, it’s beauty and pitfalls.

Thomas Roe provided our topics session asking people to speak on their favourite cheese, flower, furniture, word and even room in the house! This resulted in some funny and enthusiastic speeches about bookcases, beds, long walks, railways and Stilton!

Meetings: every other Monday 7.00-8.30 pm, currently online. Guests and visitors are most welcome. Call Allan Rimmer on 01455 324495 or go to
