The meeting held on Monday 13th, included an interesting talk by David Battye, entitled ‘Not Little Darlings’, on his time as a teacher and Head of Science in various schools. At times comical and other times almost unbelievable, David talked about his long teaching career in which he helped his pupils to not only learn about Science but also how to cope with life once they leave the school environment.

A raffle was held, books and bird seed sold and refreshments provided.

The next evening meeting will be a talk on ‘Well Dressing’ by Keith and Shirley Thomas on Monday November 10th at 7.30pm in Anston Parish Hall.
