Freya and Mina visit our Club

Freya (Left) and Mina (Right) with our President (Middle)

A very interesting meeting was held on 12th March with two young women guests. Freya (on the left of the picture) is currently C&B’s Youth exchange student. She is intending to travel to Czechia in the summer and experience a challenging programme of travel and sampling of customs and culture in that country.

Mina (on the right) is a world class climber who gave a super talk illustrated with an incredible slide presentation of daring climbs she had done recently in Norway, Kentucky and the UK. We were wowed with her skills and abilities. Let’s hope both women come back before long to the club and tell us about more endeavours. Freya’s proud parents are on our President’s left and right. Thank you to all concerned for the organising.

The annual Rotary trivia humiliation Quiz at Chiswick and Brentford proved to be another fun night with Bill Hagon setting a great range of international questions that reflected our members and friends from almost a dozen countries.
