We were delighted to have a new guest speaker, Leslie Wright, who told us of her visits to Japan over the last 15 years regarding its geography and culture from blossom time to tea ceremony. She brought along her fascinating collection of photo books which have been built up over the years. We are hoping to invite her back to continue her story. The evening certainly whetted our appetite for a visit to Japan. Leslie is a member of the Bradford – Mönchen Gladbach twinning group. There were 15 present including 3 guests.
