Sgt at Arms,gave both a 2 minute warning for start of meeting and also called meeting to order at 7.00pm. She also provided information on H&S issues, use of mobile phone.
Meeting had to move a couple of key people into roles on the evening, as a the original role holders had to cancel due to illness. However, the people who stepped into these roles did a marvellous job and there was a flow to the proceedings.
Pauline, as Toastmaster, a role she took on that evening, managed, with her usual professional but relaxed style to ensure that the meeting was enjoyable and followed the agenda originally set up by the Manager of the meeting.
There was one speaker, Andy, and this was delivered well and he managed to remember the various dates etc without any problem. The Evaluation of this speech was carried out by Bridget.
The Table Topics session was unusual in that the Table Topics Master, Elizabeth, organised this through participants selecting a number of items from a bag, and had to run their Table Topics based on these products. New members and visitors took part and this proved to be a very enjoyable session.
The meeting was provided with reports from Sarah the Grammarian, Evan the Ah Counter andthe Timekeeper. This closed at 8.45pm, which enabled members and visitors alike to gather together and enjoy a another session of networking.
All in all an enjoyable and fun session. Well done to all.
