SPEAKER MEETING 


President Ian Bradley welcomes our speaker Dr. Simon Hyde. Headmaster of King's school, Macclesfield.

Dr. Hyde gave an excellent presentation covering the history of the School. We were surprised that this dated back 517 years.

We were also very interested in the update of the building work of the "state of the art" campus on an 80 acre site between Macclesfield and Nether Alderley.

This super accommodation will offer cultural, academic and sporting facilities to a standard difficult to find anywhere else in the UK.

Here is a picture showing the progress to date.

Some of our members are marshalling at SEASHELL SPORTIVE on 15th September, an exciting fund - raising cycling event on some thrilling routes through the Pennines. The event starts at 6am and means a very early start for our volunteers, who are seen below planning the event with Dominic.
