This month 218 members attended our meeting.
We celebrated our 15th anniversary with cakes at this month’s meeting, and then our speaker was Thomas Partridge-Underwood, a councillor for Wellingborough. He gave us a very amusing and informative talk about his experiences in public service. In addition to being a councillor, he has also served as mayor for Wellingborough, and he had many charming anecdotes from his own family, and also from members of the royal family that he met during that time. Apparently Princess Alice had a wicked sense of comic timing.
The raffle took an impressive £247 and the star prize was the popular £50.00 M&S voucher again.
