One of the finest March days drew an 18 strong group of members to join the 'Neighbourhood Day' walk on 25th March. Leaving from the Guild House the route took in Kenilworth Road and Kixley Lane before heading north on the canal to Grove Farm. We then worked our way back towards Knowle through the lanes and housing estates to the east of the Warwick Road. In the process most people learned more about their neighbourhood and chatted to other Society members and therefore their neighbours.
A packed Village Hall greeted the former Master of Temple Balsall returning to the area after three years to speak on his work at St George's Chapel, Windsor. Understandably a large proportion of the audience was suspected of being former 'groupies' from Temple Balsall but the subject also held a wider interest. James's combination of dry wit, reputation for excellence on the subject of 'ageing' and recent experience on the Falconer Commission on Assisted Dying, his discretion in respect of his current Royal connections, his natural expression of his Christian faith and the work of the Chapel were also a big part of the draw and his talk was very well received.
