Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

We had three birth­days to be cel­e­brated this month, Pauline Bax­ter, Sylvia Fletcher and Pat Gro­gan.

The usual busi­ness of the meet­ing was dealt with in­clud­ing announcements of a Tea Party to cel­e­brate the Queen’s birth­day on July 29, a Look and Learn day in Oc­to­ber, all to be held in Bourne End by the Fed­er­a­tion and the wel­come an­nounce­ment that this years Carol Ser­vice would be held in Amer­sham Free Church in De­cem­ber.

Our speaker this month was a wel­come re­turn of Colin Oakes who told us very in­ter­est­ing facts about the ‘go­ings on’ at La­timer House dur­ing the sec­ond World War, some of which he had per­son­ally ex­pe­ri­enced through work­ing there as a young boy and in­ter­ro­gat­ing per­son­nel by Air­fix.

The rest all fac­tual in­for­ma­tion which had been pub­lished af­ter the re­lax­ation of the of­fi­cial se­crets act in 2004. Many mem­bers had mem­o­ries of the area. Colin is a very amus­ing and fac­tual speaker who held ev­ery­one’s at­ten­tion.

The raf­fle was won by Lilian Fer­gu­son, Edith Turnock, Ce­cily White and Sylvia Fletcher. The af­ter­noon con­cluded with some light hearted quizzes. Our next meet­ing is on July 6 when our speaker will be a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Hear­ing Dogs for Deaf Peo­ple.

New mem­bers would be very wel­come. We meet at the Chesham Town Hall in the af­ter­noon of the first Wed­nes­day in the month.
