Chester Meetings, Saturday November 18th 2017

Globetrotters in Chester

Presents

  1. Brenda Rewhorn: “Tatting Around Japan”

    Travelling is an education in every aspect and I have always enjoyed visiting all parts of the world as well as every corner of the British isles. I was invited and visited japan on four separate occasions and much of the visits were staying with local people who have become friends. The slide show is a compilations of all those visits from one end of the country to the other.

  2. Beth Gibbons: “Open Bethlehem”

    I visited Palestine/ Israel on an Alternative Pilgrimage, staying in Bethlehem and Nazareth in October 2015. I spent the majority of my visit meeting with local people and organisations working for peace with justice. The trip was life transforming and I subsequently became a Bethlehem Ambassador. The slides will show Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Hebron, Nazareth, Jericho, Haifa & the Galilee area. The talk will include information about the opportunities and the welcome visitors will receive in Palestine. I will also provide information about places to stay and organisations that can provide an authentic experience of the rich Palestinian culture which survives despite living under military occupation.

    After retiring from the NHS, David Redford has worked with an International Development project delivering life saving skills in childbirth. This has taken him to a number of African countries, some rarely visited by tourists, and has gradually stimulated his interest and reading into the history of the River Nile, and also the great Victorian explorers who strove to answer the centuries old question – “Where is the source of the Nile?”

  • “High Arctic Expedition” by Kathy Burnie

    But why, Kathy? “Flew into Kangerlussuag in Greenland then cruised up the west coast to Qilakitsoq, stopping at four towns along the way. Then sailed over to Pond Inlet in Canada and proceeded south to visit various areas including Devon Island, Crocker Bay, Beechy Island, Cape Burney and along the east coast of Baffin Island. We ended at Lady Franklin Island near the south end of Baffin |island – then sailed back to Greenland and home. Saw hundreds of huge icebergs coming from Greenland glacier. Saw polar bears, muskox, walruses, whales and two nights of gorgeous northern lights. Fascinating!”
