TUESDAY 5 JULY:
OPERATION MINCEMEAT; Another stiff-upper lip English gem. Two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen) dream up the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of WWII. An extraordinary and true story of an idea that hoped to alter the course of the war -- defying logic, risking countless thousands of lives, and testing the nerves of its creators to breaking point. Performed by two former Mr Darcy's: what more could a girl want.
After last year's no frills event, we tried to get back to normal this year. We had some new faces on the committee who needed to be properly elected after their mid-year appointments and a humdinger guest speaker. Rebecca Sullivan grasped early what some people never do: life is for living. At 40 she has lived an unbelievably diverse life and career and gave us a speed trip through the highlights while we all sipped on her lemon myrtle and quandong tea. Anyone who wasn't there missed a great time. Photo competition honours were divided between Ann Foster and Sue Mayfield who between them supplied all the photos for 2021. Thanks to all the committee who played their parts to create such a wonderful event . . not to mention an excellent afternoon tea.
