PEACEHAVEN WI: Our first meeting of the New Year was held at a different venue due to the holiday closure of the Anzac Room in the Meridian Centre. The president welcomed members, subscriptions for 2017 were paid and the outing in August to Eltham Palace was confirmed.

The afternoon speaker, Harry Pope, stepped in at the last minute owing to a sudden cancellation of our booked speaker due to illness. Mr Pope’s subject was Buried Secrets which may have appeared rather morbid, but it was not. He regaled us with anecdotes of his life as a funeral director, quoting some of the occasions when things went wrong – and they did in quite a hilarious manner. In a completely different vein he then told us that he and his wife are volunteers at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne and conduct tours of this historic building every first Friday of the month at 10.30am, no need to book. Something to consider?

In the meantime, our net meeting will be at the Meridian Centre on Wednesday February 1, with John Henty of Sussex Radio fame. See you then. Happy New Year. (Joy Allen).
