Monday Club Meeting

The Monday ClubPlease don’t forget that Monday Club this evening (Monday 18th November 2013, 7.30pm in the Village Hall) welcomes Ian Pearce, a speaker from Great Ayton, to tell us the extraordinary story of how the vast ancient obelisk known as Cleopatra’s Needle was shipped from Alexandria in Egypt to London.

Ian will give an illustrated account of how this feat was achieved, how many problems had to be solved and what disasters occurred before, in 1877, it finally arrived in the Thames, was erected on the Embankment and became one of London’s most famous landmarks.

As usual, this is a free event, with free refreshments – and it starts at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
