We held our regular monthly meetings, two thirds of which were visiting and interesting speakers covering a wide range of subjects. One speaker talked about Trent Park, which was used to eavesdrop on German prisoners during the last war. We had a London Taxi driver telling us about his experiences driving passengers around London. Musical evenings where each person played one of their favourite pieces of music, and why they have chosen that particular piece, and also we have had some political discussions.
The remainder were in house activities, such as musical evenings and discussions. We also held Lodge parties at Chanucah and at Purim, and enjoyed our regular Pesach tea. In addition we held our yearly garden party in co-operation with the Wanstead Jewish Literary Society, and we were fortunate to have a lovely sunny day. We look forward to a similar programme during this year.
