As part of the 80th anniversary celebrations of Rosedale’s Women’s Institute, Dr Richard Smith, of Smith Watkins of Sheriff Hutton, gave an illustrated talk in the Updale Reading Room on Monday evening on the history of the ceremonial trumpet, how his firm makes them and how they are played at State ceremonial occasions.
Some forty members from Rosedale and neighbouring Women’s Institute branches thoroughly enjoyed Richard Smith’s fascinating and amusing presentation and the lively question and answer session that followed.
And thanks, of course, to all who contributed to the delicious supper afterwards.
