The April meeting was very much enjoyed when guest speaker Cyril Parry talked on the Royal Ladies connected with Bedfordshire who, although not queens themselves, gave birth to future royals. The first, Devorguilla, lived in Kempston for several years, the second Margaret Beaufort gave birth to a son who became Henry V and the third lady, Georgina, became the Duchess of Bedford and was well known for her wild behaviour. The next meeting is on Monday at the Simpson Centre at 8pm when Jane Woolman talks about the history of corn dollies.
