Getting our rhythm back!

Jane Fisher from Newtown Toastmasters

We've been a little quiet over the past week... we needed time to adjust to being back at work!

Tuesday 14th was our first meeting at Trinity Union Church.

Finnian answered his question, "Anthro-what?" in a most educational way; Dianne brought to life the exploits of Amy Bock; Victoria captivated us with her character reading in Katherine Mansfield's "The Dolls' House"; and Norbert enlivened the topic of personality testing with his usual humour.

We'll be back next Tuesday, 28 January, into the swing of 2020....join us and start ticking off your New Year's resolutions
