News: August 2017

The August meeting was started with an Extraordinary General Meeting required to amend the Constitution in respect of the maximum number of members allowed. The motion was to increase the number from 60 to 70 and was carried by a unanimous show of hands.

This was followed by the normal monthly meeting where the speaker was a gentleman by the name of Derek Poulson. His theme was “Its Not What You Say But The Way That You Say it.” No-one expected what was to follow. Derek was able to mimic every dialect from various Scottish regions, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland also North and South Wales together with every region in England. In the process, he had members rocking with laughter as he highlighted some of the characteristics of each.

There was also a serious undertone whereby he was able to explain the divides between East, West, North and South in terms of the origins of each dialect be it Germany, France or Scandinavia.

This is one speaker who will not be forgotten for some time.
