Watton Society May Meeting
Our May meeting by Andrew Clarke was on Antarctica, Andrew gave a very interesting talk on when Antarctica was discovered and by whom, he then went on to explain its geography and make up.
His roll in the scientific research over the last 30 years and how it had changed, both during the winter months and in its summer when the number of workers increased from 1,000 to over 4,000 and the various nations operating there and the close contact with them.
He then went on to talk about the wildlife, including whales and penguins. His talk was accompanied by images of the landscape and accommodation along with some of its wildlife.
Next Month we have Stuff and Folly coming to the Methodist Hall on Wednesday 15th June. A local based entertainment group, that stage fully scripted original short plays and sketches, specialising in humour and a variety of themes.
