Speaking in front of people, even when speaking about a much loved place such as Felixstowe, can be nerve wracking. At Speakers of Felixstowe a warm reception awaits new and rusty speakers who want to improve their skills. Experienced orators are also encouraged to come and share their tips to help others develop this vital employability and social skill and to enter the Association of Speaker Clubs contests.

Their last meeting was competition night which saw one of their long term members move onto the area speech contest with an interesting and informative talk on growing and eating chilli peppers. This means a speech demonstrating clear structure and topic knowledge, delivered clearly with good vocal variety, and enhanced by appropriate body language.

Speakers of Felixstowe is a members only club, open to anyone at Adastral Park, and your first taster session is free. Their next meet is on Thursday 27 March at 7.45 pm at The Marlborough Hotel, Sea Road, Felixstowe, IP11 2BJ. To find out more or inform them if you are coming, contact Keith (President) on 01728 604174 or email speakeroffelixstowe@yahoo.co.uk.
