Annual Lunch 2018

On 9th January the annual lunch was held at Hadley Park House, Hadley Park East, Telford when 86 members enjoyed an excellent menu, had time to enjoy the company and catch up with old friends plus make new ones. It was very sociable with the unanimous request to repeat the occasion & venue.


The meeting commenced with introductory music suggested by the Classical Music Appreciation Group. Roger Phillips created a 1950’s slide show and there was an art display researched by Art Appreciation Groups 1 and 2.
There followed presentations by several groups commencing with:-
- The launch of Sputnik & the International Geophysical Year by Marilyn Higson and Jane Apling of the Science Reading Group
- 1957: the world 60 years ago, Alan Cartwright from the Chair.
- Books of the year by Not Another Book Group
- The Goon Show: The Space Age performed by the Play Reading Group.
- Science Reading Group’s Alison Harris spoke about Accelerating Science and Sheila Conner on Medical Developments.
- Computing in the 1950’s was given by Roger Phillips of the Computer Group.

Singing for Fun closed a very enjoyable & informative afternoon with a selection of Space Age songs relevant to Space and the Galaxy with thanks to Diana Barnes to her amusing verse of “Let’s Go Fly A Kit” & Tony Etherington’s ukulele and John Soper’s keyboard accompaniment.
