and drug activity. Violence, economic control and political power were fought for between the various ‘families’. Their code word ‘Omerta’ which translates as ‘hush’ was the only way to survive - but with no guarantees. The behaviour of the Mafia was totally brutal and the idea of ‘honour’ killing is a distortion of the word. The practice persists to this day. Most remember the body of Roberto Calvi which was found hanging under Blackfriars Bridge in London in May 1982. Known as God’s Banker because of his links with the Vatican and money laundering, he fell foul of his criminal compatriots.


This fascinating insight into what has become a Hollywood genre, made us all realise that it is much more sinister than the portrayals seen on the silver screen. Richard finished by saying that unless our applause was substantial, his ‘uncle’ in Italy would get to hear about it!! We duly obliged.


Finally, we were again to be found with our stand at the Kingsbridge Show this year on September 2nd. It is always a pleasure to introduce those who do not know what University of the 3rd Age is all about. It doesn’t take too long to replace trepidation with interest in our 30 plus groups, all of which are led at no cost by members with knowledge in a wide variety of subjects and activities and who are keen to share their expertise, like Helen Curtis, who promoted her group ‘Fun with Flowers’ at the show.

The groups range from intellectual to leisure pursuits and £15 p.a. entitles you to belong to as many groups as you have time for. Outings organised by any group, of course, will incur a cost for the trip, but so much fun and new friendships can’t be quantified.


At least this year the show field remained dry after last


years delugeand wellies weren’t needed. Thanks to all those dedicated people who organise it each year.
