Speaker Dinner- Ven. Ian Wheatley CB QHC
The Rev Ian Wheatley QHC
Chaplain of the Fleet,
at Somerset County Cricket Club.
Speaker Dinner. 92 Diners sat down to a
two-course meal at SCCC on Saturday after taking part in a Heads and Tails
competition to win a Stereo Player.
The speaker was Chaplain to the Royal Navy Ven Ian Wheatley CB QHC, who regaled
his audience with amusing tales of traditional and current ceremonies. He
described some of the pitfalls of being a Padre to a ship’s company whose
average age is 23, and who were intent on leading him astray, with potentially
damaging impact, but we suspect only heightened his approachable reputation. He
was good company.
The Conquest Centre, one of the principal Charities that were being supported,
then made a presentation and showed a video.
The Auction, conducted by Ven Ian, had some valuable prizes which had been
donated by Members and friends, and was well supported, adding to the Grand
Total raised by the evening was £4,650.
