Doors will open at 10.30am for setting up, refreshments and general chat and looking at exhibits. We can then start with a few talks if there is time. Some of the group will then be lunching in a local pub from 12.30pm onwards (this has yet to be arranged as the local pub just down from the village hall is closed at present but is due to re-open but I don’t know when). The meeting will continue until we have run out of talks etc, possibly around 5pm. It is hoped that there will be time for a few short ‘workshops’ as well during the day, with the use of the Mapmate program and photographing moths a couple of ideas suggested so far. If you would like to do a short workshop on any area of your own interest then let me know.
The day’s entertainment is entirely dependent on members bringing along items of interest or being prepared to give a short/long talk. I have 2 talks ready at present. Tony will be bringing a digital projector for those with digital presentations or images. If anyone would like to show ‘old style’ slides hopefully we can arrange a slide projector if needed, please let me know on this. Tables will also be provided for those with exhibits. It would be useful if you are intending on giving a presentation to let me know. Refreshments will be provided.
If you are doing a Powerpoint presentation then you should save it in OpenOffice format or if you use Microsoft Office then Office 2007 format or earlier.
Bucklesham Village Hall is not far from the Nacton A12/A14 roundabout to the east of Ipswich. From the A12/A14 roundabout take the minor exit after the A12 exit but before the A14 Felixstowe exit. This exit is signposted to Bucklesham and leads via a single track road to Bucklesham Village. At the end of this road you will reach the village, at the T junction turn right into Bucklesham Road. Take the next right turn into Levington Lane and the village hall is a short distance down the lane on the right.
A map of the location can be viewed by following this link. The OS Grid Reference for the hall is TM242417. If you need any more detailed instructions in how to get there then do get in contact with myself.
Hopefully see you there!
