As readers will know, The Ipswich Society runs a season of Winter Illustrated Talks usually held at the Methodist Church accessed from Black Horse Lane. These events on all sorts of subjects of interest to members are entertaining and sometimes revelatory. Readers will also be aware that we are an entirely voluntary organisation. We are seeking two or three members to assist in organising the topics and speakers for these talks as a small sub-committee to the Executive Committee. This work would involve the drawing-up of a list of potential speakers, liaising with the Hon. Secretary and Executive and booking the speakers; support would, of course, be available. It shouldn't be too onerous and would prove interesting for the right person or people. Please contact our Hon. Secretary, Caroline Markham, whose details are on page 23 if you would like to participate.
