Christmas quiz and lecture
Saturday 7th December 2019
A keen bunch of Quekett members attended the final meeting of the year, which was held in the PA135 Meeting Room at the Natural History Museum and followed the usual pattern, with a quiz, refreshments and a lecture (Fantastic beasts and how to find them, by Tony Pattinson).
Dennis Fullwood was elected an Honorary Member of the Quekett Microscopical Club at the committee meeting in October, and Phil Greaves presented him with his certificate.
