Followed by the Monthly meeting Bob Brand
Our speaker, Graham Harrison, tells the outstanding story of a Bedfordshire man involved in almost every major event in the first half of the 20th century. A regular visitor to Cliveden, his friends included Nancy Astor, Winston Churchill, Amy Johnson, and Lawrence of Arabia. His influence was far reaching and yet, sadly he is virtually unknown today. Robert Henry Brand was a Victorian who saw two world wars and lived into the Space Age, the changes, and events he lived through and witnessed are incredible. Although born to an aristocratic family and raised as a servant of the British Empire, he was a very forward thinking and liberal minded individual, as it shown in his writings, both published and private.

To attend for the first time, please email Chairman for the password to the Zoom meeting (Doors open 10.15am).

Tree Trail Note revised date
Uppingham Tree Trail Are you interested in learning more about trees?

Join us as we follow the Uppingham Tree Trail to identify some of the mature tree specimens around the town and learn about their origins. This is a self-guided walk with a booklet. There are two trails. One is about 1.5miles, the other about a mile both starting and ending at Uppingham Market Place. You can walk either or both, as you choose.

You need to make your own travel arrangements to meet in Uppingham at 2pm (weather permitting). There are several options for tea and cake after the walk.

If the weather is kind this is an opportunity to meet up outdoors, get a little exercise and learn
something new. Just contact me to join in LSN
