January 2015 Monthly Meeting
2-4pm
Rickards Hall
A History of the World in 20 Minutes
Christopher Lloyd
As many of you will know, we have had a big campaign recently to encourage more people to join us. We're pleased to report that it's been very successful and we now have over 150 members with over twenty joining so far this year.
Christopher entertained us all with his very professional performance and lecture to a packed hall. It was so full, it was standing room only. This is the first time it has happened.We are sorry that we weren't able to accommodate everyone and we are working on finding a new venue so that we will be more comfortable in future. Watch this space.
