Our February meeting was the first of our 2020 programme and set a good standard for the rest of the year.
Our speaker Mr Roger Devonside had us all enthralled and entertained by his account of his exploits as a Wingwalker on many types of aircraft. He has performed at air shows all around the country raising money for charity. He now continues to raise money to support charities by after dinner speaking and to many groups like ours who are ready to support him.
An accomplished speaker,as well as a Wingwalker,he kept us entertained with many anecdotes interspersed with jokes in true Liverpool style. Thanks to Roger for a very pleasant evening and we wish him well as he continues his fundraising.
Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday 4th March in the Parish Room at 7.30 pm when our speaker will be Wendy Northway whose subject will be Liverpool Docks.
A warm welcome awaits for anyone who would like to come along to this open meeting. Entrance of £2 includes refreshments.
