Our speaker for this evening was Geoff Scargill with his talk I Never Left School.

Mr. Scargill gave us an account of his career in teaching where he rose through the ranks to become head with all the trials and tribulations that are the lot of teachers.
He told us about other dedicated teachers who helped him along the way although there were some who hindered. He taught in some of Manchester's most deprived areas with all the ensuing difficulties of promoting a need to learn in the youth of the time. He had many stories to tell which rang in our memories of similar experiences and people. Some were rather sad but there were a lot of funny anecdotes. It was a very entertaining talk.

The competition of an old school photo was won by Sue Couling with Wendy Edmunds second.

Our next meeting is our evening out when we will be going to Arley Hall for a guided tour round the garden with the Head Gardener and tea and cake afterwards.
