May 24th 2017 – Lackford Lakes
We spent a truly wonderful evening in the company of the lovely Will Cranstoun enjoying the wildlife and beautiful scenery of Lackford Lakes. The members were taken on an evening walk to hear the nightingales and witness the wide variety of wildlife Will had described earlier in the year.

June 15th 2017 – The EADT
Our guest speaker was Terry Hunt the EADT editor, who told us his history, the papers history and its present day contribution to the news media world. It was a truly inspiring talk by a guy who is so passionate about his chosen career and life. The evening was made extra special by the fact our very own member Lisa Parker was part of the family who founded the paper and the granddaughter of its first ever editor over a hundred years ago.
My grateful thanks to all who made the meeting so special and the Tea Team Lisa and Karen for the delicious eats.
