Transport – October meeting

Good News!  Despite the outcome of the June referendum, the Brussels based ‘Société pour la conception et la construction des avions en papier’ will allow us to run our annual ‘Aeronautical Design, Construction and Experimentation’ event next January.  This is an advance warning to all members of the Transport Group that time is running out […]

Society Today – August meeting

In August we tackled the immense problem of the pollution of our oceans by waste plastic materials dumped there in huge quantities and by most countries – especially in South East Asia.  A major feature is that waste is carried by sea-currents around the oceans and the quantities are immense: packs hundreds of kilometres long […]

Walking (Evening) – August meeting

An unbelievable last evening walk for this year as the sun shone on a balmy evening for our walk from the Tollemache Arms in Harrington.  A gorgeous sunset as we returned to the pub, where we were able to enjoy our drinks outside.  That’s three out of four walks we’ve been able to do that […]

Wine Tasting – September meeting

We start the autumn on Thursday, 8th September, when Peter will bring along a selection of Italian wines which you might expect to taste on the coast somewhere between Genoa and Rome.  We will try and imagine that we are sitting on a terrace above Portofino watching the sun go down, and that the warmth […]

Bird Watching (Thursday) – August & September meetings

Still a few warblers around last month at Cossington Meadows, namely whitethroat, willow warbler and reed warbler.  There were three green sandpipers on Upper Marsh pool, otherwise nothing of particular note.  Having said that, I’ve never seen cormorants sitting on telegraph wires before!  Weather permitting, September’s trip will be an all-day one to Frampton Marsh […]

Walking (Strollers) – October meeting

The sun shone, the water sparkled and twenty-four of us enjoyed a stroll around Kinewell Lake, after which we visited the locks and the River Nene before lunch.  Thank you Zillah, it was good to visit a new area.  On October 14th we begin at The Bell Inn, Burton Overy (LE8 9DL), meeting at 10.15 […]

Photography (Digital) – September meeting

We welcomed a new member and a visitor who we hope will be with us often.  The numbers will be swelled again next month bringing our membership to seventeen.  Our next chosen topic on 16th September is Architecture – lots of scope there.  New members will be made very welcome with or without photos to […]
