The Evening Speaker was Les Pickford, his subject was  ‘Cartoonist’.

He briefly explained the history of cartoon drawings from the earliest recorded illustrations in 15th Century, and satirical cartoons in 18th Century mainly focused on the Royal Family. He used his sketches to explain how cartoons are used, e.g. exaggeration, changing proportions, using stereo types, props and giving animals human characteristics. We were finally encouraged to be cartoonists ourselves which caused a great amount of laughter.


We meet at 7.30pm on the last Thursday of the month at Over Peover Village Hall. There is a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and speakers are invariably of a very high standard as are the homemade cakes and tea to follow. New Members are most welcome.
