Report 3rd November 09

From Russia With Love.

 Our popular speaker, Mr. Forster, is a consummate story teller. Using his confidential, intimate low key style, with many interesting  asides he spun us an intriguing tale centred upon the Russian royal family especially the Czarina Alexandra and her connection with Harrogate. The Royal families of Greece, Belgium, Denmark and England were also interwoven into the story.  We were held enthralled hanging on his every word.  In the end he showed copies of 14 letters written by the Czarina herself to a man in Harrogate.

Mr.Forster takes no fee for himself – the fee goes to the Leeds Childrens Holiday Camp Association. 

But did the Czar of Russia really open the Royal Bath Hospital?
