"As we pay our speakers for their presentations, it is rare for me to write and thank them. In fact this is only the second occasion I have written in my ten-year tenure as programme secretary, and believe me, we've had some excellent speakers. An unprecedented number of our members commented to me on the all round excellence of your presentation. I feel sure it won't be long before we are welcoming you once again - the members will make sure of that!"
Ed Milius, Heaton Chapel Literary & Philosophical Society
