Dear Members and Friends,
Thank you very much for your support throughout the recent season, our first held via Zoom. Members who had moved out of the area have rejoined as they could again attend meetings regularly and many members have said that they have enjoyed attending in the comfort of their own homes rather than turning out on cold, dark evenings. Nonetheless most would like at least an occasional actual, rather than virtual, meeting.
We plan to hold the first and last meetings of the 2021/22 season in the King’s Lynn Town Hall. Not only is it a beautiful and historic building but also it has good ventilation and social distancing is possible if still necessary or desirable. Of course none of us knows what the situation will be and we might have to change arrangements at any time.
The Annual General Meeting (covering two years this time) will be held on Friday 15th October 2021. Immediately after the AGM our guest speaker will be Francis Pryor on ‘The Fens – Discovering Britain’s Ancient Depths’. Dr Pryor’s latest book ‘The Fens’ was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week in 2020 and his depth of knowledge matches his subject’s. To complete the evening we invite you to a reception.
The following seven meetings will be held via Zoom. The closing meeting of the season, on Friday 25th March 2022, again in the Town Hall, will also be followed by a reception.
We have a full programme of talks, the first four are:
Friday 15th October 2021 AGM and ‘The Fens – Discovering Britain’s Ancient Depths’ by Francis Pryor
Wednesday 3rd November ‘Endangered Species: Working Actress’ by Marilyn Cutts, long service Equity member
Friday 19th November ‘Seeing Science – Objects from The Whipple Museum’ by Alison Giles, Learning Co-ordinator, The Whipple Museum
Wednesday 8th December ‘Haussmann’s Redesign of the City of Paris’ by David Price
Sending news of the remaining five talks and full details of the AGM will give me an excuse to keep in touch with you over the next few months.
I wish you an enjoyable and sociable summer after such long lockdown.
Please look after yourselves, we so want to see you in October. Thank you again for being with us
Sherie Naidoo, Chairman, King’s Lynn Society of Arts and Sciences.
