Our guest speaker in February was Veronica Smith who came to talk about Buiilding Design and Conservation in Essex.
Veronica is a member of the Maldon and District Design Awards panel and explained that each year applicants compete for awards in building design, building conservation, sustainability, and conservation. Her talk was illustrated with pictures of the successful winners fron 2016, and members were fascinated to look at the process of developing the Water Tower at Latchingdon, Wibblers Brewery at Southminster, and aa renovated Georgian House in Maldon.
Veronica followed her interesting talk with a picture quiz where members were invited to identify 20 historic buildings and a prize went to the winner and runner up.
Our March speaker will be Amanda Sutherland and her topic is A Creative journey through Film TV and Theatre Costume Design.
