The first meeting in Haddenham Village Society's new programme is a talk by Cynthia Floud about a relative of her husband's, Phyllis Floud, called 'Memoirs of Phyllis Floud'.
It takes place this evening. Wednesday 10th October, at 8pm in the lounge area of Haddenham Village Hall. (NB: This is a temporary change of venue due to current repairs to Haddenham Community Library's heating system.)
Phyllis Floud (née Ford), who was born in 1886, spent her childhood in middle-class Victorian and Edwardian Hampstead. The story of her ill-matched parents — penny-pinching and preoccupied with social status — her brother banished to distant Empire, and her pro-suffrage sister, is worthy of a novel.
New members will be welcome.
Light refreshments are served after the talk.
