Another good turnout for the lecture last night, Mick made what could seem to be a rather "dry"
subject extremely interesting, and his delivery without notes was impressive to say the least.
I noticed a lot of the attendees were "mixing" during the interval which means there will be less
self-conciousness when it comes to volunteering for positions we have yet to fill for this WFA branch.
Also I must say that a big vote of thanks to Mick(micmac) and wife Julie for the amount of work and drive they have put into getting this new branch of the WFA off the ground.
Again I can only urge forum members and friends living in the Lincolnshire area to attend these
gatherings, a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and looking forward to the next meeting
Many thanks to Tom for his support & kind comments and indeed to all the members who attended another successful muster on Monday evening. The turnout again surpassed all expectations and certainly bodes well for the future of our branch.
A special mention in dispatches goes to our guest speaker, Mike Credland, who delivered an extremely interesting presentation on the war memorials of Lincolnshire. As Tom said in an earlier post, this could have been a dry subject, but Mike's passion & enthusiasm for his subject made sure it was anything but and very informative. Good on you Mike, a job well done mate. As a follow up to Mike's presentation, we are hoping to tie in a summer social function that involves a trip around some of the memorials in the Lincoln area followed by a few cold ones in one of the village pubs so watch this space.
During the interval it was really great to see everyone mixing and welcoming new members to our group and many thanks to those who offered their services to enhance our branch organisational skills.
The Student's Union at Bishop Grosseteste University College looked after us very well & it was agreed that we shall use this venue for the immediate future. I can now go ahead and plan the rest of the years events & speakers so again watch this space.
Many thanks again to all WFA Lincoln & N.Lincs members for their continued support,
