Next Open Meeting

Please note that there is no Open Meeting in August. There is also no Open Meeting in September – instead we will be celebrating our 40th Birthday at the Town Hall on 23rd September.

So, the next Open Meeting is on Monday 21st October at the Abbey Lane Bowling Club, doors open at 1:45 pm for a 2:30 pm start. The talk by Chris Truran is entitled ‘Dabs and DNA Detects Criminals’.

Chris covers the first criminals convicted by fingerprints, the Brighton Bombing, Lockerbie, the Tsunami, James Hanratty – and a daughter’s DNA that solved a 30 year old murder by her father.
Chris joined the Metropolitan Police in 1975 and trained as a Scenes of Crimes Officer (SOCO). He worked in London and examined over 25,000 crime scenes ranging from shop-lifting to murder, starting 38 years ago when DNA was in its embryonic stage.
We look forward to seeing you for this arresting talk when there will be the usual free raffle, refreshments and social banter.
