2022 saw the start of the Friends bi-monthly Taplow Talks. These now take place quarterly starting with coffee and dessert at 7:00pm followed by the talk at 7:30pm.
The first talk last year was about Taplow Court. Over sixty people enjoyed a lovely chocolate dessert and coffee followed by a stimulating talk which ended with lots of questions and answers.
Then there was our Welsh Evening in March with a beautiful film about the River Towy in Wales.
In May, we had a fascinating talk from Mark Bradshaw who was General Manager of Cliveden for some years. He not only told us lots of information about projects there but also talked more generally about the work of the National Trust in maintaining our heritage.
Then in July, over sixty people attended the talk about the Rise and Fall of Skindles.
In September, we met together for a fascinating talk all about trees and in November, we shared the long family history of one of our congregation in a talk called ‘Child of the Empire’.
Back last February, we held our biggest event with a musical offering called “Friendship: the Perfect Blendship” in which Maidenhead Musical Comedy Society led us in an exploration of the wonderful musical “Anything Goes”. 100 people enjoyed singing together and learning about the background to this work.
