February 2nd 2023 Lunch Speaker

After our monthly lunch, we were entertained and informed by our speaker Richard Marks.  Richard’s talk, ‘So, We Don’t Make Anything Anymore’, demolished the myth that Britain does not have a thriving manufacturing industry.  Pharmaceuticals, Aerospace, and various enterprises producing specialist textiles and metals were mentioned.  In answer to one of the many questions, Richard mentioned that Neil Armstrong’s lunar underwear was made in Yorkshire and that the giant parachute that deposited the Perseverance Rover on Mars came from Devon.

June 2022 FFG Meeting

A message from John Coleman:
We are holding the last meeting of the Family Finances Group before our Summer Break on Thursday, 16 June.
Our Guest Speaker will be John Devine, who is a Senior Investment Manager at Charles Stanley in Guildford.  His presentation will cover  Charles Stanley’s “Investment Outlook” and given the present inflationary environment, the war in Ukraine, energy price hikes, stock-market volatility and the cost of living squeeze, it should be “interesting”.  John will welcome discussion of any investment / financial issues that you may wish to raise – so get your thinking caps on to take advantage of this opportunity to hear the views of an expert in the field.
As usual, we begin gathering at Weybourne House from 9.45am onwards for a 10.00am start to the meeting. To cover the cost of refreshments and hire of the room, there will be a charge of £4 and, whilst any form of payment can be made on the day, it would greatly help if this could be paid prior to the meeting by “Bank Transfer”, using the usual details.
