North East Associates
Spring Meeting

- Tuesday 14th March -

Our new season started in earnest today as one-hundred Associates, partners and friends gathered in Newcastle’s Assembly Rooms for their customary first event
– an indoor meeting.


After a substantial buffet lunch we were entertained by Freda Thompson,
a "Toon Guide" who told us about ‘Ladies of Tyneside’ in a light-hearted manner.

On the Assembly Rooms wall - a diner, or one ot the aforememtioned ladies?

Some of the tales were other than light-hearted though.

Freda's subjects ranged from the legendary 'Cushie Butterfield' – who was immortalised in song – through a murderer and other less-reputable characters, to a Wimbledon tennis champion – Muriel Evelyn Robb - and a North Shields born renowned Naval Architect who had a distinguished career in Tyneside shipbuilding.

Enjoyed by all we left in the knowledge of a continuing social programme as in a couple of weeks a group are off to Bournemouth for a short break before our monthly excursions start in April with a trip to Edinburgh or Leith.
