SPEAKER

Our speaker,Phil Curtis, gave an excellent and illuminating talk on "Life in the 50's."
He evoked memories of childhood fun but also highlighted the things that made life hard for families during these years.
Things such as tin baths, no hot water and no central heating to name but a few, although we knew no different.
His presentation was well received by the members present and he was accorded the usual vote of thanks.
