Talk by Pamela Vass on the 1952 Lynmouth Floods @ Cowick Barton
Oct 30 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Come to this talk by Pamela Vass, a local author.

Many remember the summer of 1952 when flash-floods destroyed the small fishing village of Lynmouth on the North Devon coast. She was intrigued by rumours of government interference with the weather, and spent many months accessing previously secret documents at the National Archives in Kew. This talk uncovers the incredible true story that creates the backdrop for her novel Seeds of Doubt. She will also include some readings from the book and anecdotes about the research and writing process.

Join us for lunch from 12, if you can. The talk will start at 2 pm.

Book with Susie by 23 October.

Talk by Shaun Curtis on ‘The University of Exeter: Present position and future prospects’ @ Cowick Barton
Nov 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Come and hear Dr Shaun Curtis speak about the present state of our university and its future prospects. He is ideally qualified to speak about this, since he is the Director of Global Development at the University, and is responsible for the delivery of the University of Exeter’s largest ever fundraising campaign – Making the Exceptional Happen.

The University’s Strategy document 2016-21 places emphasis on five areas:

Research:                   Building research power to tackle global challenges.

Education:                 Delivering an internationally excellent education.

Impact:                      Creating an impact regionally, nationally and globally.

Our people:               Supporting our people to make the exceptional happen.

Our resources:          Making the most of our resources.

The document also talks about Values: Ambition, Collaboration, Challenge, Community, Impact, and Rigour.

No doubt Shaun will cover some of these issues in his talk.

Join us for lunch from 12 noon if you can. The talk starts at 2 pm.

Book with Peter before 14 November.
