March 2014

The Club held a very enjoyable Spring Lunch on Saturday 1st March at St Columba’s, Pont St, with 31 members and guests in attendance. Our delicious lunch, provided by Leonard, was followed by a very interesting talk by Steve Hawe of the charity, Beanstalk, which provides voluntary reading help in schools across the country.

Our next event is a visit to the Jewish Museum of London on Sunday 6th April 2014. The museum is located at Raymond Burton House, 129-131 Albert St, London NW1 7NB. Information can be found at http://www.jewishmuseum.org.uk/?location-id=425. The Museum is not far from either Camden Town Station or Mornington Crescent. On Sundays, Camden Town Station is closed to passengers boarding trains after 1pm, so Mornington Crescent would be the stop for return journeys.
