July 5 – I will conduct the meeting with a talk on “Engineering Drawings”.

August 2 – We are hoping to run a workshop on the Office programs. In particular Powerpoint which I hope will be lead by Paul Brown (remember his lecture). Please let us know if you are interested in the course and any aspect of office in particular.

Sept 5 – Note a Wednesday. We have booked a visit to the Shuttleworth museum and gardens.  For the Shuttleworth Roger has just booked entrance to the Collection and two guides (max 18 per guide). If 24 people go that works out at £11.50 each! The tour lasts 2.5 hours.  The café and gardens are available afterwards for those who want to use/see them. We plan to use own transport to get there.

October 2 – Note a Tuesday. I have booked a visit to the Music Museum at Brentford. Nominal charge will be £8.50 which includes a guided tour and operation of some instruments. We plan to arrive at 12-00 midday for a 1-00 tour. We are planning own transport to get there.

November 1st (note change of event) – We are hoping that Paul will give us part two of his Why things move lecture.  

November 20th – We have planned a visit to the Postal Museum in London. This will be a joint venture with the general tip group.  This will be arranged via a tour company who provide trips which include a tour of the Postal Museum.  It includes a ride on the train that used to transport mail bags between centres around London. There are some restrictions on who can be allowed on the train in the case of it breaking down.  Full details of date etc., will be given later.

Many thanks
