Radley Retirement Group – Newsletter October 2021


For the meeting in September we had a talk by Cyril Mannion entitled “From Routine to Abnormal in the Blink of an Eye.”  This gave us an insight into the problems which may arise for a pilot when encountering a sudden crisis mid-air.  It was comforting to know that they are trained to deal with any such problems and the passengers are often not aware of any crisis.

After our appeal last month for more Committee members, we are very pleased that three of our members stepped forward to help.  They are Margaret Herbert, Jeanne Wakeley and Chinta Kallie.  We are looking forward to working with them in the future.

Future Events:

Our next meeting will be on October12th when our speaker will be Peter Haque and his talk is “Extras in the film industry.”

  • Tech Talk by Elaine Walton:  October in the Bowyer Arms at 2pm
  • Film Show: My big fat greek wedding. October  in the Village Hall
  • Christmas Bazaar: November 20th in the Village Hall.
