For the second time in only a few months our advertised speaker had to pull out, though this time with just enough notice for us to be able to find a replacement, so we were very pleased to welcome Jon-Paul Carr to our August meeting, with a talk on “Inventions and Inventors of Victorian Northamptonshire”.
The talk was very well received, and gave us all a lot of insights into the ingenuity of the Victorians. As you might expect in Northamptonshire, many of the innovations were linked to the shoe industry, but they also covered many other things, including steam engines, agriculture, bicycles and even lavatories.
201 members were treated to this entertaining talk
The raffle took £215 and the star prize was again a £50.00 M&S voucher which has proved very popular.
