News: May - July 2013

 

On Saturday, May 4, following our Council meeting at the auspicious and prestigious, Oxford and Cambridge Club, Pall Mall, we celebrated the end of coughs and colds and the long winter at Panton Street’s Stockpot! A cheap ‘n cheerful favourite of Londoners for decades.

 

The following Saturday, May 11, we met at Walthamstow’s London N17’s William Morris Gallerywww.wmgallery.org situated within Lloyd Park, current exhibitions include David Bailey’s East End Faces. This was followed by a stroll down East Ender and Chair, Dr Helen Carr’s memory lane and along Walthamstow High St’s market – the longest in Europe. Members were delighted to take respite at Manze’s Pie & Mash Shop, although whelks and jellied eels are a treat reserved for future outings.  On 8 June, we visited The Red House, Bexleyheath, Kent – William Morris’ residential home now managed by the National Trust.

 

On the 17 June, there was a warm welcome for enthusiastic overseas member, Joella Werlin, who was visiting the UK in June and July from the USA. She was a student of Rodney Needham, and recounted life in Oxford then.  And more tales over fish and chips, in Oxford's Rose and Crown, on 24 June
