Once again LWHS members did the society proud by turning up in force for our member only display of signed art prints by renowned local artist Roger Lane, with around 40 making the evening a huge success.
With 24 USAAF 486th Bomb Group related local scenes on view, plus a most interesting display of local wartime photos by our Chairman Dennis Duffy, there really was lots to see and much discussion ensued. The buzz our members created with their lively discussions was then much enhanced with lots of US and British bunting, liquid refreshments and some lovely pastry savories courtesy of Sue Horsley, which were scrummy.
With first guests arriving well ahead of the 7.30 start and the last not leaving until after 9.00, it was apparent a very good time was had by all, and testament to the efforts put in by Roger, Dennis, Sue and the rest of the LWHS committee.
We now very much look forward to welcoming guests new and old to the LW Parish Room on Wednesday 19th February for our next talk, on Boudica and the Iceni 60-61 AD by local expert Dr Nick Sign, who is Vice-Chairman of the Suffolk Local History Council and Hon. Editor of their journal Suffolk Review.
Do come along for what is sure to be another entertaining and informative evening, though it is recommended that you bring along a crash helmet; once Boudica got going, not even the might of the Roman Army in Britain could stop her!
