Dorothy, as social secretary, is trying to recruit a foursome to take part in the national speakers’ competition in Derby on 21st October. The idea is that the four people do a 10-minute talk between them on any subject. The catch is that the three words “three”, “piece”, and “suite” have each to be mentioned twice in the talk. That’s all there is to it. The four people would have to rehearse in someone’s house over summer. I understand that if the foursome is arranged it has to be quite quickly, because rooms for the overnight stay on the 21st in the hotel in Derby have to be booked very soon. If you would like to take part, or would like just to go along and watch, please contact Dorothy directly, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass your name on to Dorothy.
