Dates for your Diary
Tue Nov 9th Monthly Meeting 1345

The very popular and funny Paula Cornwell returns , in character and period dress , in a presentation set in 1930.

“ Go up in one of those instruments of torture ! You”ll kill yourself “ she shrieked when I told her of my plans to fly around the world in an open- cockpit light aircraft.

“But it’s 1930” I said “ Soon everyone will be flying”

This very amusing presentation looks at how the Hon Mrs Victor Bruce prepared for the new flight and a fascinating insight into her adventures
