March 2014 Meeting




‘Oh! What a Carry On’
Mr Frederick Jones

Tuesday 18th March 2014

Before our meeting we welcomed two ladies from the Merseyside Fire Service – Emergency Heating charity, to collect the wonderful & very colourful, blankets of squares that our members have knitted – 13 in all.  The Charity donates the blankets to the elderly, along with those living in poor conditions.  Thank you to all our members for your excellent work.

Our meeting was entitled ‘Oh! What a Carry On’ which Toastmaster, Mr Frederick Jones, explained have been some of his experiences as weddings MC.    Fred was very entertaining and gave us an exciting insight of the ‘do’s and don’t’s of speech making’.  As a special gesture to the Bride & Groom, Fred presents them with a certificate detailing the history of their surname.
