Our speaker this month was Rosie Wenham who is a Magistrate on the Cambridge Bench. We found out about the work of a magistrate and what is involved in hearing cases and the rules that have to be applied when deciding on an appropriate sentence. We had the opportunity to look at two case studies and think about all the aspects we would need to consider and then say what we thought should be the sentence. It was a very interesting exercise . Next month our speaker is Betty Prime who is going to tell us about a holiday in New Zealand under the title 'Tales of the Unexpected'- not your usual holiday talk. Our congratulations go to Caroline and James Matheson who were the winners of the Gay Bullied Award this year in recognition of their hard work for all the village as Editors of the Swaffham Crier for many years - Well Done!
If you are still looking for that new interest in 2008 then come and give us a try on Monday 18th February at 7:30 in the Village Hall - see you there
