Police Forensics - 27 June 2013

Anyone interested in crime missed a very informative meeting last night if they weren't at Village Link when Martin Leadbetter spoke on The Forensics of Fingerprinting, its past, present and future. It has been known about since the 17th century but it wasn't until the turn of the last century that it was adoped by police forces across the world. Currently one in ten people in Britain have their fingerprints on file. They are used not just for establishing guilt but also innocence, identity and even for telling fakes from the real thing.

Our next meeting is on Thursday 17th October at 8pm when a representative from Paradise Park Broxbourne will speak on Breeding and Conservation.

Entry is £10 for a year's subscription or £4 for one meeting

From Rags to Royal Rags

Eddie Rowland’s talk to Village Link proved a real hit, from his tales of his father’s POW boat being torpedoed to his name dropping of the rich and famous he has dressed. Starting with the Beatles and ending with our country’s leaders, he never ceased to amuse and inform.   Our next talk will be by Keith Fitzpatrick- Matthews on Thursday 28th February 2013  (Please note change of date) at 7.45 for 8pm and the following talk will be on Thursday 18th April 2013 when we will have a speaker on Stem Cell Research.   The Village Hall will be undergoing repairs during the first three weeks of February so please note change of venue for various events to Wallington Village Hall. Annual membership is £10 for four meetings or £4 for a single meeting.
