The Autumn season of speakers got off to a wonderful start with Alan Craske talking about the Holly Maze at Castle Bromwich Hall.  He was an experienced and amusing speaker who led us through the restoration of the maze from 1985 when 800 holly trees, originally planted about 1880 and grown lank and spindly, were cut down to 10cm stumps, to the beautiful precision hand cut masterpiece of the present day.  He cuts it twice yearly taking about 21 days each time!

The next meeting on Thursday October 18th also promises to be very interesting as it is about Inn Signs and their history.  Visitors are always welcome and there is also a Sales Table that evening.
