Fines

Tonight’s fines by Brian Milestone were an informative and thoughtful journey around the newly formed Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement and its many points of debate.

 

Soapbox

Tonight’s soap by Wayne McCurdy can only be described as a rant against the policies and procedures of our esteemed council and government departments. Wayne had entitled his soap “why” and common sense could be the solution.

 

Guest Speaker

Tonight’s guest was our very own Brian Milestone who presented a report on a kids safety programme currently in place in Marlborough that is reported to be contributing to a reduction in accidents in young people by teaching First Aid and Emergency Procedures. A DVD news report by TVNZ was shown to support this view. The Club will investigate the possibility of facilitating this in our area in conjunction with professional associations.

 

 

Parting Thought:-

Tonight’s parting thought by Robin Aitken:-

“Surely it is no coincidence that the word ‘listen’ is an anagram of the word ‘silent’!’”
