Our speaker this month had some of us on edge as the time ticked towards 2.30 but Laura Malpas arrived together with the necessary equipment by 2.15 and a quick set up had every thing ready on time.
The Talk "Secrets and Scandals at Canons Ashby" was very interesting and covered a lot of History and was enhanced by use of many slides of both the characters and the buildings, internal and external. Laura obviously new and loved her subject as she spoke without any notes and with added humour.
Whilst Laura never tried to "sell" Canons Ashby by the end of the talk several people had decided they would like to go there and see it for themselves.
199 members were treated to this entertaining talk
The raffle took £208 and the star prize was again a £50.00 M&S voucher which has proved very popular.
