Who would have thought that a talk about sewage could be amusing as well as informative? Well Eddie Anderson managed both. He told us about the history of the upper reach of the River Mun which flows through his property in Northrepps. With some fascinating slides he then went on to explain how a lake on the estate had become polluted and how the building of 3 holding ponds planted with water plants had managed to filter the water from the Northrepps sewage plant so that phosphate free water could be returned to the river.

Our next meeting is the actual 25th. Anniversary of Trunch Friends which was formed in November 1993, so it will be a bit special. Charlotte Philcox, one of our favourite speakers, will talk about “The Holly, Ivy and the Mistletoe”. There will be a competition of Christmas memorabilia – so look out all those old decorations, photographs or gifts.

Visitors will be most welcome as usual for £2 on the door which includes refreshments.
