Start of Season Party 17 March

The evening got underway around 7:45p.m. It rapidly became apparent that it was not going to be as well attended as in past years, which was somewhat disappointing given the effort that had been put into it by Mike Baker, Rodger and Linda Wheeler and others.

At 8:00p.m. Nigel welcomed everybody and then introduced a presentation by Mike (Over Easy) Baker on "The history of our part of the River".

Mike had had done a lot of research which started 30 million years ago although most was since the building of Hampton Court Palace and the Bridge. Much was on the land marks, islands and the personalities involved with the river.

Mike’s talk was illustrated by a slide show of well over a hundred pictures assembled into suitable format by Richard Cannon. They were projected by Nigel Knowles on a large screen presented to the club by Tony Hopkins.

For those who missed the evening a video DVD of it is available from Richard Cannon.

 This presentation lasted about an hour and was followed by one of the best cold buffets we've ever had at Aquarius.

The evening, for those who made it, was a great success and everybody's thanks go to R & L and Janet Edwards for all their work before and on the evening.
