Don’t miss “EVEREST 1921-1953” an illustrated talk by Hywel Lloyd in the Church Hall, 7 pm on Friday 22nd November


Sir Edmund Hillary (L) and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 29th 1953

An illustrated talk to celebrate the successful summiting of Everest 60 years ago. Hywel Lloyd will tell us about the nine expeditions organised by the Alpine Club in conjunction with the Royal Geographical Society, to reconnoitre the mountain and then find a climbing route to the summit of Everest. The Alpine Club expeditions carried out reconnaissance, found climbing routes, tested oxygen methods, learnt logistics; all leading to brilliant mountaineering that achieved the first ascent in 1953, now 60 years ago.

Friday 22nd November at 7.00 pm in the Church Hall.

Wine and nibbles.
