Anyhow my purpose was to visit the Keswick Branch exhibition and meet with the,members there. I found the village hall in Threlkeld quite easily and was greeted by Pat the secretary who immediately offered me a cup of tea. A perfect welcome after a couple of hours in the car. I then met Debbie the new chair . We chatted about the branch, the problems still caused by the winter floods and the actuality of being a small isolated branch.
By chance I raised the Travelling Book idea and then went to my car and brought it in to show members. They, like me were very impressed and I might see two pages from then in the distant future. A light lunch and then I drove back, frustrated by the lines and lines of traffic cones for non existent road works but happy that I had seen all the lovely work and put more names to faces.
