Last Month’s Talk at Ore Centre (9th August) “The Life and Times of Edith Cavell” by Melanie Gibson-Barton

Melanie treated us to an accomplished presentation of a remarkable woman whose life and actions set an example to all. Nurse Edith Cavell’s bravery and altruism in the face of wartime threats in 1915 were exceptional. Her summary execution served to galvanise British and American resolve to fight on and defeat the perpetrators. Melanie Gibson-Baton expertly  presented the facts of Edith Cavell’s arrest, trial and execution together with detail of the heroine’s fascinating life.

Hastings Winkle Club by Richard Stevens

The Winkle Club is well-known in the town and its value is felt by so many today as it has been through the ages. Many noted personalities – some of royal descent – have been made honorary members and are expected to “Winkle Up” when called upon to do so. Richard Stevens will be providing that extra detail which will bring this worthy organisation to its full meaning.
