Midsummer stroll Wednesday 26th June

Actually a little late, but it’s still near enough.
This is a real stroll for a warm(ish) evening, just 2 miles with a pub before and after!!
Meet at the Wharf, Hockley Heath for a 7:00pm start, so you’ll have time for a meal there first if you want to. There’ll certainly be time for refreshments afterwards.  Led by Dave Pinwell.

Shipwrecked in Antarctica !


Georgie Hale from Coventry, will tell the tale of her and her husband’s experience whilst being two of 154 passengers and crew on the MV Explorer when it sank in Antarctic waters after it (according to an official report) was driven too fast towards a “wall of ice” by an “inexperienced and overconfident” captain.
Come and hear how they survived this frightening experience.

Stories from the Auction Room

This will be an entertaining talk from Steve Bruce, Auctioneer, about the business with many humorous tales and anecdotes about the characters involved, whom to trust and why – and who and what to avoid. He examines the costs of buying and selling at auction, how to choose the best auction house – and how to get the best bargains at auction. He also relates some of the humorous experiences he’s had during 50 years as an auctioneer and valuer working across the UK.
