July Main Meeting: “London – Curiosities and Oddities Part 1”

At our July meeting, we were treated to a most enjoyable talk by Sally Botwright on some of the curiosities and oddities found in London that few people ever see.  Sally is a well-known and experienced Blue Badge Guide who was granted the Freedom of the City of London in 2015. With an excellent slide show, Sally guided us through the streets of London making us look at unusual features of familiar buildings that we have never noticed and introducing us to quirky and hidden parts of the city that make up its fascinating history.  Sally enthralled us with her extensive, detailed knowledge of London and the stories behind these oddities..  Her talk was interspersed with humorous anecdotes to keep us interested, entertained and wanting more.  In the Q and A session, a member asked when we could hear Part 2 of Sally’s talk and it’s good news to report that she will be returning in 2017.
