Oct 6th | ‘When The Clock Strikes Twelve…’ – a talk by Barbara Faulkner

October’s meeting, a talk entitled “When the Clock Strikes Twelve”, was a complete mystery to us all, and produced a number of different guesses as to what it would be about! The speaker, Barbara Faulkner, didn’t let on for quite a while but instead took our suggestions and told us some of the history and folklore associated with them. Hence we went through, amongst others, stories of witches and the “witching hour”, Cinderella and the glass slipper, and the New Year and Auld Lang Syne. However, the final outcome of the talk was a complete surprise, and – I’m afraid – must remain a secret from all except those of us present at the meeting! A very entertaining evening with a lively speaker!
