On 21st February Dr and Mrs Duke-Cox gave us a most delightful talk and presentation on ‘The Petwood Hotel’ which took us back to before the Second World War – the very early stages, when it was built as a very large bungalow for Sir John Blundell Maples’ daughter, Grace.
The slides showed us the bungalow as it was and explained how it was sold to be a hotel.
