I then commented on the Summer Outing on the Llangollen Steam Railway. Corwen to Llangollen and return train trip with afternoon tea, wishing everyone a great trip and thanking David Roberts for his expert advice and being such a fine host on board the train. We look forward to seeing all the photographs on the Probus website.

We had a 10 minute break and when we returned I introduced our speaker, Chanel Humphreys- Jones, who presented her talk about her experience of establishing Cathedral Frames and illustrated it with examples of the high quality of workmanship which goes into meeting the needs of customer. 

Julia Hughes has provided us with an excellent synopsis of the talk, which Steve Tootell has published on the Probus website where we can all read it.

There were several questions for the speaker after which John Barr extended a vote of thanks to the speaker on behalf of the membership.


The Meeting was closed with the toast to Denbigh and District Probus Club.
