Dates for your Diary
Meetings
Mon Oct 25th William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement by Mark Lewis. Celebrating the life and work of this illustrious poet, artist and social reformer, who pioneered a movement that reacted against the soulless machine production of the Industrial Revolution and promoted joyful labour, the enjoyment of fine craftsmanship and simplicity of expression.
Mon Nov 8th Travel into Japan by Derek Beddow. A talk about the culture of Japan and day to day life in this fascinating country.
Mon Nov 22nd Dark Light, the Flannan Island Mystery by Fool's Gold.

Dark Light is the new Fool's Gold zoom show for 2021.
It has been created as a wholly new show specifically for zoom using some of the clever functions available to build a fascinating and creative show.

This time we have connected the songs to one story: a fascinating mystery based on a wholly true history from 1900...

...and it's amazing how many songs of the time that you will know, smile, and sing!

Wed Nov 3rd The November’s walk for the Wanderers group is going to be around the Baldock area. We will meet at 11 am by the Tesco’s entance (the one without steps). Our wander will be about a mile on paved surfaces. It is Market day so we will also be able to have a look around there and also visit the church. It will not be a 'muddy' wander so if it's raining don't let that put you off!

Lunch will be at the George IV- up the London Road towards the motorway, post code: SG7 6LZ.

Wed Dec 8th The December wander around Henlow will be on 8th December (2nd Wednesday rather that the usual first) so please could you let the group leader know whether you are able to come? Thank you
