Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing attends International Churchill Society meeting
Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing attended a meeting of the International Churchill Society held at Chigwell Golf Club.
The meeting - organised by chairman Tony Woodhead and secretary Raymond Warner, saw Celia Sandys, granddaughter of Sir Winston, gave a “brilliant” lecture which was illustrated by pictures and videos of the Great Man, entitled, "The Power of Words".
She took her enraptured audience through the history of Sir Winston's most famous speeches explaining their importance and effect. For the audience it was a very special experience - hearing about Sir Winston directly from his beloved granddaughter.
Mrs Laing said: "Hearing about Sir Winston directly from his granddaughter, Celia, was a very special experience.
“Celia is an accomplished historian and chronicler of her grandfather's works. Her presentation was brilliant - most informative and utterly enthralling.
“The members of the local branch of the International Churchill Society enjoyed it immensely."
