I spent an interesting evening back in November speaking to a rotary club in Nottingham on the subject of Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust. I had been given a 30 minute slot and as I hadn’t done a talk like this before, had actually put some effort in!
I’ve got to accept old churches are more of a minority interest so had tried to keep it light with one or two slightly risqué aspects and of course lots of pictures.
Bit of a disappointment then (for everyone) when it turned out the President’s husband had not done what he should have with the AV, so no pictures! The audience did very well and stayed awake throughout whilst I described what would have been on the slides. Even seemed to have enjoyed it though they were a very polite bunch
