The speaker at our 12 April meeting was Allan Peters who was Personal Protection Officer to Princess Diana.
Most of us remembered the attempted kidnap of Princess Anne in 1975, and it was after this that it was decided to increase the protection of the Royal Family. Allan applied, along with 500 other officers, and after a long selection process, got the job. He started off working with Prince Charles, who at that time was looking for a wife and stayed when he married Diana. Allan was prepared for questions and there were plenty! Lots of questions about Diana's accident and Charles' relationship with Camilla, and Allan answered them all with honesty, but perhaps not always with the answers some wanted to hear!
We have drawn up a new programme of speakers for the next 12 months, with some interesting and exciting ones lined up. Our monthly walks continue and we will be starting our garden visits next month.
Our next meeting is on Thursday 10 May and is our AGM with voting on the Annual Resolution, which this year is about making mental health matter as much as physical health. We'd love you to come along and join in our discussions. Just turn up at 9.45am for a 10.00am start. If you'd like a lift or have any questions, please call Jackie German on 01458 259688 or email jackiegerman@hotmail.com
