Topics Chair, Mark Rogers, gave out a different A4 picture to everyone to speak about. All joined in the session.

James Douglas evaluated the Topics.

The Chair, James Douglas, thanked everyone present for their contributions to another successful evening. He asked Amy Winder how she felt the evening had been for her and members contributed to a brief discussion. Amy explained that she wanted to improve her self-confidence. She asked if there was anything she could prepare in advance for the next meeting and it was decided she should talk about herself (as Making A Start) or any other subject of her choice.

Everyone was reminded that Area President, Anne Bouget, would be at the next meeting to run an Evaluation session. Eddy agreed to video the session but Diana would first ask Anne if she consented to that.

James closed the meeting at 9.25 pm and wished everyone a safe journey home.
