19 October: AGM and the Amazing World of Fungi

 

In October we are meeting up face to face for the first time in over 18 months, although there will still be a virtual meeting for those who want to join via Zoom

We will hold our Annual General Meeting with a summary of our financial position and annual report. Then we will welcome local expert Joe McSorley for a talk on the Amazing World of Fungi. Fungi are not plants or animals but a third kingdom of living things all around us in the air we breathe and in the soil. There would be no life on earth without them. Fungi can be food, drugs, both legal and illegal, poison, folklore, beauty and death and Autumn is the best season to see their weird forms in our wild spaces.

Review September: Meet The Mafias

 

In September, we were joined by Dr Amber Phillips from UWE for a fascinating talk on The Mafias

Ever since The Godfather, there’s been no avoiding the Italian mafia in popular culture: mafiosi pop up everywhere from computer games to car insurance ads. And yet, many people are surprised to learn that the mafia are still active in Italy – and that there’s more than one. Amber’s talk covered 3 mafia organisations, the Camorra, based in Naples, the Cosa Nostra in Sicily and the ‘Ndrangheta based in Calabria.

Review August: The Go-Gets

 

In August, we were joined by the fabulous Go-Gets, a 60s inspired dance troupe.

Established in 2017, they have grown into a sisterhood of passionate dancers and vintage enthusiasts that love to build each other up. Dancing our way around the UK alongside both national and international rock n roll and 60’s inspired garage bands, they love to bring a sense of feel good fun to make everyone smile.
