Report 1st March 2011

President’s Morning

This week our President Rev. Mark Godfrey showed slides of the mountains, forests, lakes and limestone caves of the small Alpine country of Slovenia.

Slovenia gained its indepedence from Yugoslavia in 1991 after a short 10 day conflict.  It now seems very prosperous and is part of the European Community and Euro zone.  The most spectacular scenery is around Lake Bled.

Mark showed us the capital city Ljubljana with its medieval buildings, the narrow coastal strip and the limestone caves which are of a considerable extent.  The technical term for limestone scenery is Karst. 

Brian Blakey gave the vote of thanks.
