From Andrew P Bennett, Area 45 Governor
Braving ' Tempest, storm and wynde' Berkeley Square Speakers set out to Speakers Corner Hyde Park to celebrate Britain's Great Bard with a Shakespearathon. We were pleased to be joined by guest Toastmasters from other clubs and the curiosity of passers by was clearly aroused by our Shakespearean antics. We were also rewarded with sunshine for our picnic - the muse was clearly smiling upon us!
President Chris Dunn and Past Area Governor David Adams produced the best set of Table Topics with quotations that i have ever heard. This brought delight to the crowd, as did the recitations (many from memory) by the very talented members of our club.
All in all a lovely way to celebrate the end of our club year and our 10 out of 10 in Distiguished Club Plan.
The final feedback was ' Why don't we come to Speakers Corner more often?' ' Why don't we hold a Speaking Event at the park with all London Toastmasters Clubs?' The way is open so let's seize the opportunity my friends!
