On Tuesday 17th October 2017, President Steve Gage welcomed to Coventry North, Anne Langley, who gave an illustrated talk on the Brandon Silk Mill.  No members present had heard of the eighteenth century industry before Anne spoke, but maps and documents indicate it was quite an established industry.  Rotarians were quite fascinated by the subject and many questions were asked.  Rotarian Andrew Pargetter gave the vote of thanks and President Steve presented a cheque for her charity and wished her well for the future.  Rotarian Brian Sharp took the photographs.
