Salisbury branch AGM and ‘Beyond that last Blue Mountain’ talk

Loading Events

The Salisbury branch AGM will be followed by a talk by Oriental carpet specialist Harriet Sandys about her experiences in central Asia. Entitled ‘Beyond that last Blue Mountain’, it will cover the fascinating story of her time in Afghanistan after the Soviet invasion and what she did to help the refugees there, her travels with the Peshmerga in the newly-liberated Iraqi Kurdistan in 1991, and her time spent with a group of unemployed builders and decorators driving convoys of food and aid from Croydon to the Muslim enclaves in Bosnia Herzegovina in 1994.

The event will be held at The White Hart Hotel, 1 St John’s St, Salisbury SP1 2SD. Coffee will be served from 10am; the AGM will start at 10.45; the talk will follow at 11am; and the lunch at approximately 12.15pm. Lunch & talk: £18 members, £20 guests; talk only: £10, but FREE for first-time visitors. For more information or to book a place please contact or
