Wild and windy weather conditions in Diss were an apt accompaniment to guest speaker Roland Buggy’s talk for the new year recalling his visit to Antarctica in 2001. Replying to a newspaper advertisement Roland was able to fulfil a life-long dream to visit this white wilderness. Flying out to the Falkland Islands and transferring to a converted fishing boat Roland was one of 100 hardy travellers who were looking forward to spending a month discovering Antarctica. He illustrated his talk with many photographs of the features and creatures that inhabit this bleak and hostile landscape and which for Roland are a reminder of a never-to-be-forgotten experience.
The next meeting of Diss U3A will be held on 2nd February at the United Reformed Church commencing at 10.30am.
