Milos, Island of Colours


Milos is a gloriously colourful and one of the lesser known islands in the Aegean Sea. It has fascinating geology, with coloured cliffs overlooking crystal clear water lapping gently against sandy beaches.  Red, white, yellow and blue cliffs are a stunning backdrop to the white houses, with blue shutters, found in the steep alleys of the local villages.

Gerald Ponting will be talking about Milos, Island of Colours on Tuesday 14 August from 7.30pm at the Memorial Hall, South Lane, Clanfield PO8 0RB.  Please note the change of location for our August meeting whilst maintenance work is being carried out in our usual venue.

Gerald Ponting was brought up on a small farm in Hampshire - the subject of 'Scenes from a Hampshire Childhood'. He was awarded a degree in zoology at the University of Southampton and had a successful career teaching biology in Suffolk, Stornoway and finally back in Hampshire.  Whilst in the Hebrides, he was awarded a British Archaeological Award for research at the Standing Stones of Callanish. In the 1990s he became a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for Hants, Wilts and Dorset.

Everyone welcome to join us at this meeting and don’t forget to come along to the Annual Horticultural Show next Sunday 19 August at 2pm!
