Lunch years


During this year our speakers were from the 1851 Commission talking about the work of the Commission from its formation to today; an Accupunturist describing her work and Lady Young talking about her father's life, Oscar Nemon the sculptor.


The November speaker was from Fortnum and Mason.  She spoke about the history of the shop and that it was run by a family still!  During the Great War officers mailed orders to Fortnum and Mason for their food supplies.  We were treated to the sight of one of the order books from that time.

We heard about life behind the scenes at the Royal Albert Hall in May.

Our speaker in February was Angela Smith MP who spoke about her journey to parliament.


The speakers for our February meeting were from the Hearing Dogs for Deaf People charity.  A dog Maple came along too and demonstrated his skills when hearing usual sounds in our homes.

We were fortunate in May to hear President Alice Gast talk about her life and aspirations for Imperial College.
