U3A 28th Feb 2020 Meeting
The Splendid Isolation of Tristan da Cunha
An introduction to the island's wildlife, history and the way of life of it's people.
Tristan da Cunha is the world's most isolated inhabited island, home to fewer than 250 islanders who are all farmers and rely on a flourishing fishing industry which provides their main income.
Tristan is an active volcano, last erupting in 2004 and famous for the 1961 eruption which forced it's population to evacuate to the U.K.
A presentation by Richard Grundy who worked as a teacher on the island between 1982 — 85 and now works on a voluntary basis to help the community by editing the Tristan Govt. website — www.tristandc.com and the Tristan da Cunha Newsletter. The latter is a full colour magazine style publication, printed in Glastonbury and sent to Tristan da Cunha Association members across the world, as well as to every family on the island.
Monthly meetings normally take place on the fourth Friday of each month at the Edgar Community Hall, Somerton starting at 10am with coffee (50p) and chat.
After any notices the main event begins at 10.30am and finishes by 12 noon latest.
Meetings are free for members, visitors £2 each.
