November 2012

For the first event in her year as President, Carol Whitesmith has organised an outing to the Science Museum in London to visit the Turing exhibition on Saturday 8th December 2012. The exhibition looks very interesting as it covers the life and legacy of Alan Turing who was involved in code-breaking at Bletchley Park. Turing was also a great mathematician and contributed much towards the development of the first computers. More details are available at- Turing exhibition

There will be no charge for this visit but it would be useful to know how many members and friends will be attending. We have arranged to have an area set aside in the café for members after the visit to the exhibition. We plan to meet at the main entrance of the Science Museum in Exhibition Road at 2pm on the 8th December.
Please let me know by Friday 30th November if you will be attending.

We were sad to hear of the death of Rosalie Lucie-Smith who passed away sometime last year. The new owner of her house phoned Margaret Goldfarb to tell her after receiving a letter for Rosalie from the club. She had been a member for a long number of years and will be missed by those who knew her.
