Over 40 people enjoyed a talk by Carol Hinds on 4th September. Best known as a BBC local news presenter, Carol spoke about her career at the BBC, which included a period producing light entertainment programmes at Pebble Mill. An engaging speaker, she provided a real insight into the work of a local news presenter, but interspersed it with a succession of amusing anecdotes about working with colleagues, celebrities and the public. The talk concluded with a question and answer session, after which Carol stayed to chat informally with everyone over coffee.
The event was organised by the Ruddington Local History & Amenity Society to raise funds for the Village Museum. Thank you to everyone who attended and to Carol Hinds, who generously agreed that all the profits from the evening, a sum in excess of £120, should go to support the work of the museum.
Carol gives between four and six talks a year and is always booked up a long time in advance, but if you’re looking for a speaker for your group or a fundraising event, she comes highly recommended.
