Alton Webteam: January 2017
At our January meeting we welcomed Bob Weighton to talk about "Two Years in Tokyo". As this was an open meeting we had a large audience. Bob excelled with a very informative, entertaining and humorous talk which he delivered without any notes! He brought a mini exhibition of artefacts from his stay in Tokyo which included a scale model of the house in which he lived--this model he had naturally made himself.
Thank you Bob. We raised £177.00 which has been given to the Anna Chaplaincy to support their work with the elderly.
Our next meeting is on Saturday 25th February at 2pm (postponed from 18th Feb) when our guest speaker will be Gemma Turrell of Booker & Bolton, Solicitors.
