Wellingborough & District


November NEWS

210 members turned out this month in the hope of being entertained and they were.


The raffle did well again and thanks to all those that participate. The star prize again this month was a £50 M&S voucher


Before the meeting started I was asked by a few members what the talk was about. I relayed the information that is was about worms and it was going to be good, well a few then wondered if they should have come to the meeting. Those same people came to see me after the meeting to let me know how pleased they were to have been there.

Wiggle with a Giggle

Martin Clarke told us his tale of how he became a worm farmer/breeder. Martin assured us all that this was a true story, they do say that truth is stranger than fiction and this is a case in point.

Brilliantly delivered with some helpful and amusing slides, it was a laugh from beginning to end. The story involved a drug dealer, the Health and Safety Executive, and other government departments all of them bamboozled by the invention of several new words.

Below is photo that I nearly didn’t take, I got so involved in listening to the tale I almost forgot.

For those of you that don’t come to the monthly meetings you have missed some great speakers this year and long may it continue.

Thanks Martin for a very entertaining afternoon.
