Wednesday 11th March

Speaker George Williams

A Walk around Britain's Coastline (with humour!)

We heard the first of George's epic journey around the British Isles with his dog - he got to Blyth on this visit. We heard about the odd places he ended up sleeping in and of the 'kindness of strangers' - cups of tea, sandwiches, baths, bottles of milk etc. An enjoyable evening. Look out for the next date in this continuing journey.


Wednesday 8th April

A trip to explore

Exeter's Underground Passages

"Dating from 14th century, these medieval passages under Exeter High Street are a unique ancient monument: no similar system of passages can be explored by the public elsewhere in Britain."
