Thanet Speakers club held their Hopper’s team practice on the 12th May in preparation for the Hoppers Cup competition that will take place in Canterbury at the start of June.
A new approach to the impromptu speech section followed where speakers had to pick out their topics from lucky dip style bags. The theme for the topics involved speaking in a style of a fellow member or a well known public figure on subjects ranging from cabbage fields to smelly socks.
The winner of the impromptu trophy was won by Margaret Jones who had the audience in stitches with her aristocratic talk on belly buttons Our newest member Martin took second place with a comical response to smelly socks speaking in the style of Margarat Thatcher
The business section involved the stepping down of the clubs educational director due to new commitments. Andrew Thomson dedication to his role of taking care of the clubs educational needs will be sadly missed. So on behalf of all at Speakers a big thankyou for all the hard work you have given to the club over the years.
All Thanet Speakers meetings our open to visitors. Our next meeting is 7.45pm on 26th May at the Royal Temple Yacht Club in Ramsgate. Full contact details can be found on www.thanetspeakers.org.uk
