1:00pm Monday 12th August 2013 in Latest News
A talk will be given by Neil Maconochie about his trip across Africa in 1957 at the Woolstore Theatre in Codford on September 6 at 7.30pm.
The Cambridge Stanley Expedition of 1957, which followed in the footsteps of Sir Henry Morton Stanley’s journey from 1874-1877, covered over 6,000 miles and went from Zanzibar to the Atlantic coast.
The talk will be accompanied by a film, which was made while Mr Maconochie and his three other companions, including H M Stanley’s grandson, took part in the expedition.
Tickets, which cost £5, are available from Codford garage post office on 01985 850345. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and there will be refreshments afterwards.
Money raised will go towards Amy Lock’s trip to Tanzania with Kingdown School.
