Cameo Club Report: October 2018

Cameo Club of Kirkby on Bain and Roughton – October Report by Jill Russell

The meeting was on 16th October and I think it was fitting that I filled in the first talk of the year with one on genealogy research and my daughter Ella Russell gave the last talk on : ‘Balancing Life as a Rock  Climber and a career as an Employment Lawyer’ – A rocky but rewarding combination. Without the vote given to women in 1918 even our feisty female forebears would not have imagined what Ella has achieved and the change that has come about in the potential for women to develop, even if there is still more to be done.

Ella started with a description of her life’s journey so far, being 33 years old. She was always encouraged to be active and she showed us her little walking boots which she wore when her father took her up and down a scrambling route on Snowden when she was 6. Holidays were always to hills and mountains from Peak District, Wales, Lakes, Scottish Isles to Pyrenees, Alps, Dolomites.                  Continue reading

CAMEO REPORT AUG/SEPT MEETINGS 2018

Due to our August speaker having to postpone till next year, September ‘s programme was brought forward so Dinah Ward came to give us ‘Decorating and Eating Cupcakes’ in August which went down deliciously well with all.

To fill the gap in September Misty happily came along to set us a quiz challenge which was varied and stretched us to the full. As last year the general knowledge quiz made an interesting change to the normal speaker and allowed all our competitive instincts to surface in teams of 4/5. Results:      Continue reading
