As well as working to make their town a better place and helping those in need, our members also relax and enjoy a good meal and entertainment. This year the president and members of our club together with their wives and partners, guests and friends. were at the Manor Hotel in Gravesend and after dinner were treated to Henry VIII’s personal account of life with his six wives.
Appropriately dressed for the occasion his majesty gave us insights into his courtship and marriages that we had never considered before and which we will hold in our memories for a long time to come. The period was brought so vividly to life that the swish of the axe and sword could almost be heard…but luckily not felt. It was generally agreed that with a history teacher of the same calibre as our speaker we would all have been far better educated! ”
