GEORGE NEWS - U3A kicks off with a general meeting on Wednesday, 25 January, at Emmaus. Tea will be served at 10:00 and the lecture will start at 10:30.
Mike Holland is the speaker for the day. He is a professional Metallurgist (materials scientists who specialize in metals such as steel, aluminum, iron, and copper) who has spent most of his career in the South African synthetic fuels industry.
He has operated his own consultancy practice specialising in risk based inspection and materials degradation mechanisms about which he has presented many lectures both here and internationally. Mike’s hobby is all matters historical and he will present a talk titled ‘In Poldark’s Footsteps - a glimpse of the industrial revolution’.
For those of us who can remember reading the Poldark novels by Winston Graham, this talk should bring back a bit of nostalgia.
