President Sheila Knight welcomed members and guests to the meeting on Friday. Members joined in the singing and this was followed by the business of the evening. Yvonne Long was pleased to welcome a return visit of Geoff Evans who took members on a return journey to Alaska via his colourful slides of the many remote places that he and his wife visited. Accompanied by their guide, they travelled by plane landing in very remote places before assembling their dinghy and loading all the equipment needed for camping in the wilds. They enjoyed fishing for salmon and seeing several brown bears.

The scenery was stunning and Geoff managed to take many lovely pictures. Gwen Bridgeman thanked Geoff for a lovely evening. The fee for Geoff's visit is donated to Riding For The Disabled. Refreshments were served and Sheila organised the raffle. Winners in the competition for a picture of a horse were: Ann Gibbs, Jean Peacock, Yvonne Long. The next meeting is on Friday, June 1 when the speaker will be Linda Baxter, who is a clinical reflexologist.
