The Annual Lunch was held on Sunday 24th February at the Moat House Acton Trussell and was an opportunity for members to socialise and enjoy a meal in lovely surroundings.  Many thanks to Jo Taylor for organising it so well.

Our next event was our annual visit to Tutbury Castle on Tuesday May 21st to see Lesley Smith as Peggy Knight. As usual she gave a most interesting and entertaining presentation about a lady whose exploits in World War II many of us were not familiar with. The format of this event was different as it was later in the year and took place in the marquee thus enabling more members to attend. Fortunately, the weather was good so we were also able to take the opportunity to explore the grounds.
