January was a quiet month as we all drew breath after the festive season and settled in to our normal routine of our regular activities.  But we were entertained by a fascinating talk.

50 Years of Pharmacy.  David Janes, a retiree from Boots the Chemist, gave an entertaining illustrated talk about his life as a pharmacist.  It clearly showed the advances in pharmacy during some 50 or more years from the days when the pharmacist mixed up many of the medicines himself to the present system of pre-packaged products.  It brought back many memories to us all.
