What others are saying about Jenny’s talk.
Testimonial from Malvern U3A
“Walking into Grandmother’s kitchen in 1940s Madras”
Good morning, Jenny. Thank you so much for your second excellent Zoom presentation to Malvern U3A “Walking into Grandmother’s Kitchen in 1940s Madras”. It’s always a good sign to get questions or comments after one of my talks, and we found your festive talk brought about some really positive thoughts around a time when everyone has been challenged – globally. You will have been aware from the ranges of questions following your talk that everyone thoroughly appreciated your presentation. We thoroughly enjoyed your Christmas talk and we look forward to more in the future! My very best thanks, Jeff Thorogood, Speakers Organizer, Malvern U3A.
Testimonial from Thrapston U3A (Paul Ollett Speaker Secretary) “Jenny is certainly a very able speaker as well as an accomplished authoress of a prestigious award for ‘Best Cook Book of the Year” 2017. A fitting reward to have recognition for a book that she had written and published herself. She is a wonderfully engaging lady to listen to and has many different talks in her repertoire, she is inspirational and would be a very welcome guest for a future talk.
My Family History talk Testimonial from West Surrey Family History Society <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hi Jenny, I just wanted to thank you again, on behalf of the West Surrey Family History Society, for your very interesting talk yesterday. The numerous photographs brought to life the history of your family, which seems to have been involved in some rather interesting periods of history, and we have received quite an amount of positive feedback from the attendees.
My Family History talk Testimonial from Notts Family History Society’s President Peter Hammond
This talk takes us on a fascinating journey from Mirfield in Yorkshire to the hot climes of India. Through a wonderful legacy of photographs and ephemera, along with original research into a variety of archives, Jenny’s family history is a mini-version of the development of India itself. Highly recommended.

“170 year old recipe book talk to Horndean U3A Hi Jenny, Thank you I really enjoyed your talk. So interesting, with a little railway history knowledge and genealogy thrown in. Perfect! I have a similar stack of recipe books and family trees, handed down from in laws and grandmothers. You have inspired me to get them out and go through them. Your book has gone onto the birthday wish list! Thank you Sue Dobson, Horndean U3A”

Hi Jenny, Thank you so very much for today’s talk on “The Memsahibs and their Servants” which was extremely enjoyable.

I will keep your details on file for future events.”

Our thanks again Jenny for your time and giving us such an insight into the life of a Memsahib in the British Raj.
I know how much our members enjoyed your Memsahibs talk – here’s a selection of their comments – “so interesting” “fascinating” “Jenny’s talk really brought it all to life” “very informative and well constructed” “had heard a talk about the “Fishing Fleet” but the rest was new to me – brilliant” “such a joy listening to what Jenny had to tell” ………. such comments speak for themselves I think
