Just wanted to let you know that the Friends lecture last night on the subject of York House and the Strickland family pulled in a record audience. The subject of course, was of local interest, but talking to the record number of guests on “How did you hear about the talk” – the answer was almost 100% “I saw it in Handymag”..
