Chairman's Letter
Wednesday 09 October 2019

Dear Friends,

Autumn weather has assailed us all, and it started just in time for the Arts Society’s trip to Cardiff!   By some very good fortune we missed most of the downpours as we enjoyed five packed days of art, architecture, history and drama, with two National Trust houses and guided visit to the Jewellery Museum in Birmingham thrown in.   A thoroughly stimulating and interesting few days.   Now plans are well ahead for our society’s journey to northern Italy next October and the overnight stay to visit Sion House and Strawberry Hill next April.  

This month we have been delighted to welcome some of our new members to a special meeting of the committee so that they could learn more of the opportunities available through the society:  the church recording , heritage volunteering activities and the art group.   October also sees two extra visits for members:  the day trip to see the Warners Textile museum in Braintree, incorporating historic silk and wallpaper collections which we know will be of particular interest as our two first lectures have been on these subjects.  In November we are looking forward to a lecture on Antonio Stradivari, by which time some of us will have enjoyed Phyllis Clarke’s exploration of the flute, with a chance to see and hear her collection of historic instruments.   

We hope you continue to enjoy our lectures and other activities, and look forward to seeing you soon, and perhaps at our Advent Lunch, now booking for 13th December!   In any case, we hope that you will take the time to tell us what you think of our lectures by filling in the on-line form under documents in this website.

With best wishes,

Kate Parker
