On 24th March, the last of this season's talks was well attended, members no doubt attracted by the Annual General Meeting which preceded it. At that brief AGM, Chairman, Richard Chaplin, reported on a quiet year's activities and on the most entertaining winter's programme of talks arranged by June Pughe. Chairman, Richard Chaplin, and Secretary, Mark Wyatt, were re-elected for 2015/6 as were the rest of the outgoing committee members.

The talk was given by former Tarvin resident, Peter Curnuke, who included a most comprehensive and informed description of many of the world's tree varieties and their specific uses. As a skilled wood turner he was able to show us numerous exquisite examples of his craft. Many items were for sale, from key fobs to bowls, the £110 proceeds of which he donated to St Luke's Hospice.

Next year's programme starts off in September with a talk by Colin Edmundson on "The River Weaver through the Ages", which will be followed later in the season by talks by Professor Peter Gaunt of Chester University on "Chester in the English Civil War" and by Peter Boughton, Keeper of Art in CW&C, on "Chester in Art".
