Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS -

Hamil­ton Speak­ers Club met last Thurs­day evening in Fern­ie­gair Hall.

The plans for the forth­com­ing sea­son were out­lined. Each speaker is en­cour­aged to give a fresh speech, aim­ing for about seven min­utes. As al­ways, the im­por­tance of the eval­u­a­tions is the first line of progress for the speak­ers. They should be sup­port­ive, with­out try­ing to outdo the speaker.

Last week, Mar­jory Kirk­wood asked whether we are be­ing conned by cook­ery pro­grammes.

Henry Mccoll de­liv­ered a fas­ci­nat­ing talk on the rise of Lever Broth­ers firm dur­ing the 20th cen­tury.

And top­ics mas­ter Alex Maxwell chal­lenged mem­bers about hol­i­day cruises and the value of shop­ping around for bet­ter deals.

Hamil­ton Speak­ers Club is the old­est club of its kind in La­nark­shire and lets peo­ple speak in a friendly and sup­port­ive at­mos­phere. Go to www.hamil­ton­speak­er­sclub. co.uk for more de­tails.
