An intriguing title for the introductory evening of the 2021 to 2022 season of talks to the Milverton and Fitzhead proved to be both enlightening and entertaining. Janet Few and Chris Braund know all that there is to know about ‘Coffers, Clysters, Comfrey and Coifs’ and at the end of the evening, the audience certainly knew a little more about some of the expressions which are in common use today, and which are derived from much earlier times.
Following the success of this talk, the autumn series will continue on 14 October, when Chris Hamilton will talk about Making Paris into a Modern City – Haussmann and Marville (they were the Architect and Photographer of modern Paris). All talks are in the Methodist chapel, and begin at 7.30pm Everyone is very welcome. All talks are in the Methodist Chapel, and begin at 7.30pm. Everyone is very welcome.
