Next meeting Thursday 20th February

Our next members’ meeting will take place on Thursday, 20th February, 2014 at the Central Methodist Hall, Todmorden writes Chairman Jean Pearson.

Our guest speaker will be Barrie Yates with his talk entitled ‘The Machine that Changed the World’ – (The development of the motor car).

Barrie tells me that he is what our American cousins would call a value engineer which means that he ran teams carrying out cost reduction activities and also design for manufacture but he says the best description would be that he is a clean hands production engineer!

He says that his talk will not be too technical and that he’s enjoyed his research for his talk for us.   In fact, we might like to put our brains in gear and ponder upon what have scent sprays to do with a car engine!

I know we will give Barrie a warm welcome to U3A Tod and I look forward to our February meeting.
