26 May 2011 – Back at the National Marine Aquarium

Today’s meeting was particularly special as it was our first back in our home at The National Marine Aquarium.

We all enjoyed seeing the brand new facilities available including the very impressive hi-tech lecture theatre.

This week nearly every member was present with some great guests. The speaker was our member Simon Callender of HSBC that we will sadly be leaving us as his recent promotion takes him on to greater things!   Therefore Simon was able to give us a slightly different presentation than the one planned and instead told us of his recent skydive in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care (Network Plymouth’s chosen charity).  We all enjoyed, some with horror and some with genuine interest, a video of his fall from an aeroplane at a ridiculous height in the sky!  All members agreed that he was very brave and paid up the sponsor money that we had pledged.  We will miss Simon but hope to welcome his replacement to the club in due course.
