We were pleased to be back at the John Godber Centre on Friday 18th February. After listening to a BBC podcast about how we could progress to producing the vast majority of our electrical energy from non fossil fuels Christine Vincent was motivated to create a film to complement the podcast. This led to a short discussion about some of the ideas postulated in the broadcast.

We also had a presentation of the life and achievements of inventor Trevor Bayliss. His best known invention being the wind up radio designed for places in the world without electricity.

Our next meeting is on Friday March 18th 10.00 am at the John Godber Centre, We will consider ‘Why does it rain?’ and, fittingly after this week, ‘Extreme weather’ plus Bob McEwen has two mini topics for us.
