I didn’t hold out a lot of hope for this event, but boy was I wrong. The business part was in the Synagogue in Middle Street – a delicious building hardly used now. No local congregation, especially as they have to walk to the synagogue on the Sabbath. But a delight to visit, and some great local history after the AGM.
Then a short walk to St Pauls Church in West Street for nibbles and wine. We gathered in the fishermen’s vestry where fishermen apparently used to gather after a fishing trip to warm themselves by the giant fireplace. Glass doors into the main body of the church clearly celebrate the fishing community of the town.
