The meeting was attended by 25 visitors and carers.

Christopher South gave a splendid talk on mens and ladies fashion and the changes we have seen in our life time.

Christopher took us through the ladies wardrobe from corsets to roll-on`s and from the stylish to the comfortable underwear of today.

The men`s fashion discussion started with detachable collar shirts and the use of suspenders and spats.

His talk was enjoyed by all and bought back many memories.

Report from the October cafe:

Our speaker for the Memory Cafe was Maureen Ryan who gave us a talk on her time with the Red Cross.  She was also involved  in the exchange of prisoners in the Middle East which seemed to be quite a daunting task, as well as being involved in helping to give holidays to underprivileged children.  Maureen quoted an occasion when she was doing a night tour of a dormitory and one little boy was still awake.  She said goodnight to him and gave him a kiss, and he said to her "we get a holiday and love as well".  Her talk was much appreciated by everybody and we look forward to seeing Maureen again at our Cafe.
This month was the busiest we have had over the last seven months.  Somebody who was visiting said they could hear the laughter outside the hall and commented on what a wonderful atmosphere we had created.  This month we had help from Rotarians, our Girton friends, and also from three members of the Inner Wheel which was much appreciated.
