Photographs and information from our various meetings and events which we have enjoyed.
Unfortunately our booked speaker for November was unable to attend, but luckily David Duke from Kitsons Solicitors at Torquay was able to stand in at the last minute with a talk called "A Stitch in Time". This was a talk about putting our affairs in order which was full of antidotes and very informative!
