OCTOBER 2013 - DEATHCAPS AND DEADMANS FINGERS

Our meeting in October was entitled "Deathcaps and Deadmans Fingers" – a talk by Jonathan Revett. This was all about mushrooms and fungi and Mr Revett was an enthralling speaker. He first became fascinated by mushrooms and fungi as young as 10 and his interest has still not wained.

He leads forays in Thetford Forest, gives talks about them and has even been called to hospital twice for advice regarding children who had eaten some sort of wild mushrooms. Both instances were not harmful, but that is not always the case. Many wild mushrooms are completely harmless, some can cause sickness for a day or two and some are actually fatal.

He showed us some lovely slides to illustrate how many different forms of mushrooms and fungi there are – and there are some really colourful ones. The meeting was rather short of members that particular evening which is a great shame because the talk was excellent and he was warmly thanked by Dorothy Lightley.

On Monday 25th November we have our Annual General Meeting with cheese and wine. As usual this will be held in the W.I. Hall and begins at 7.30 p.m. Everyone is very welcome.
