October happenings

The monthly meeting was held on Monday 23rd October. The speaker was Dr Brian Schneider who gave a fascinating talk entitled ‘Murder, Madness and the OED’ [A history of dictionaries and the OED. In particular  Sir James Murray who was the primary editor of the OED) from 1879 until his death; and and one of the largest contributors to the OED,  Dr. W. C. Minor, who was held in a lunatic asylum for murder during the time of his contribution to the OED]

Thursday Book Club read “Knowledge of Angels” by June Paton Walsh and the Monday Book Club is reading “H is for Hawk” by Helen Macdonald


5 Disley Detectives solved the murder of Jimmy Johnson, nightclub owner, in Manchester.  (Manhunt is a murder-mystery event – see website manhuntmanchester) They got a little soggy but those grey cells still worked! They even met Hercule Poirot!

There was a ‘craft club social’ aka a drink in the Rams Head 🙂
