The Guild continues to flourish. We had 29 people at our last meeting this week, where a most informative and entertaining talk was given by Rev. Dr. Peter Mills, who spoke of his life as a Padre in the RAF. Our January speaker, Dave Burke, talked about his work with the British Antarctic survey in Antarctica, accompanied by some wonderful slides. In March, our last speaker for the season is Elizabeth East from Edinburgh, cousin of Anne Hughes-Hallett, telling us about The Treasure Trove, which sells specialised items, made by people in reduced circumstances. We look forward to welcoming anyone, member or not, to this meeting.
We are investigating the possibility of asking a highly recommended speaker on the V & A to come and address an evening meeting during the summer. We would hope that as many people as possible would like to attend and would hope to serve wine and cheese. It would be most helpful if any interested could respond. The event would be organised by the Guild, in aid of CKS Guild., which donates to deserving causes both in the UK and elsewhere. Finally, please note this date in your diaries. The Guild annual tea will be held on Saturday, 1st July, in Kemback Hall. The time, to be confirmed later, is 2 – 4pm. We hope to have superb home baking, as well as tea on offer. Please come and support this event.
