Talk Title: Our Thames: Dartford to the Grain
Saturday, 6 January 2018
Thank you for a thoroughly good talk enjoyed by all our members. So
much information brought to life the Thames side locally, and with
your good humour! We are looking forward to your next talk.
Personally I have a much loved copy of "Liquid History - The Thames
Through Time" by Stephen Croad so I enjoyed your talk even more.
Thank you once again for a very entertaining talk.
Hi Christoph - As I mentioned to you at the time, I got some very good comments from members as they left, and I hope you enjoyed talking to George and Margaret (our Africa correspondents) afterwards as much as they enjoyed chatting to you. Thank you again for an entertaining and informative evening on the amusing stories from Kent’s public libraries. Kind regards Mike Hyde, programme organiser of Oddfellows, Tunbridge Wells District. 9 November 2017.
We so much appreciated your coming
to talk to us today. All you had to say about the Kaiser's War was fascinating
and it sounded as though it was a subject close to your heart [and your family]
Comments from some of the audience afterwards showed that it caused many of us
to think about the War from a different angle which I am sure is what you were
Dear Christoph, Thank you for coming to talk to Leytara on’ Dirty Dartford’ last week, everyone I have spoken to said how much they had enjoyed the subject and the way it was delivered. I have had several requests for an encore. November 2015
"We so much enjoyed your talk about Pocahontas. As I am sure you realised we found it entertaining and thought-provoking especially as it exploded so many of the myths that have grown up around her. Thank you very much for coming and I hope that some of us will be making our way to Gravesend to join one of your tours. Medway U3A Sept 2015
"Hi Christoph, thank you so much for the talk you gave yesterday. It was really interesting and entertaining. Our audience really seemed to enjoy it and everyone that I have spoken to was very complimentary". Dartford U3a, June 2015
"Hi Christoph I am sorry I should have been in touch before. I would like to thank you for your presentation that although we rushed, you came over in a very professional way on the 31st March 2015. We had a committee meeting yesterday and went through the feedback sheets. Everyone had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed your presentation". Dot Marshall Gravesham 50+ Forum
“I am writing to thank you for a most interesting and informative talk at Loose last evening when many of us would have learned things we never knew before (about Germany in World War One). Your research is obviously extensive and your enthusiasm for the subject was clearly evident.” David Priestley, Chairman of Loose Area History Society Nov 2014.
"Thank you for a wonderful presentation today, thoroughly enjoyed it. Can’t wait for the next one". Gravesham 50Plus Forum.

thanks for a great tour of Gravesend. The children and us adults enjoyed it very
much, and everyone liked you very much".
Hi Chris. Just been to Strood Library to hear you give your talk on libraries. We both thought you presented your subject with superb wit and knowledge. You made the afternoon so interesting and we would like to be made aware of any future talks on any different subjects that you may offer. Thank you and hope to see you at Chalk Church sometime . Roy and Margaret Davis.
Hi Chris, Thanks for your excellent talk at Strood last Saturday. It was very well received, and about as entertaining as the best comedian in the land! Norma Crowe, Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre, Strood.
Had a brilliant morning with Sue’s English group and Derek and Lisa Baldwin and Andrea Dodd at the Mayor's parlour . Thanks to mayor and mayoress Derek and Pam Sales for tea and description of duties of the job.
