On Thursday 10th October, Ray Goodburn was the guest speaker and his talk was on his experiences of cruising on the Nile. His most recent cruise was in May of this year when he covered the area from Cairo to Luxor - a part of the river not travelled by tourists for 19 years. Members saw some impressive slides of the Pyramids, the famous Sphinx and of Cairo itself. The majority of the slides were taken on the journey from Luxor to Aswan and depicted well preserved temples to various Gods dating from about 3000 BC. One temple was marked with a cross signifying later use as a Christian place of worship. The next meeting is on Thursday 24th October at the village hall at 2pm when Rosemary Pike will introduce the subject of magic in stained glass.
The Remembrance Day service will be held at the War Memorial on Sunday 10th November, beginning to assemble at 10.45am with the service beginning at 10.55am to be conducted by the Rev Mark Briscoe. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be offered in the Victoria Club straight afterwards. There will also be a Memorial Service at the Airfield, Blyton Park, at 3pm.
