Chaucer win Kent Hopper Cup team speaking competition

Congratulations to our winning team: Pete, Stew, Carole and Rachel you did us proud. It was a closely fought competition on the topic of Whoops! Commiserations to Thanet and West Kent clubs who we pipped to the post. Speeches covered everything from James Bond to kippers to optimism and many were humorous. It was an enjoyable, entertaining night and  good to mingle with members of other clubs. Thank  you to the judges especially our Chief Judge Paul and the timekeepers. Our new president, Julian chaired with warmth and confidence wearing shorts to balance the formality of his chain of office.

 The topic for next year’s Hopper cup will be ” I don’t care” and it will be hosted by Thanet. Any volunteers willing to step forward for next year’s team to match West Kent’s record of 7 wins?

You are welcome to our last meeting of the season on 3rd July when we will have three A1 Making a Start speeches. Julie will be chairing.
