Len Drinkell Talk  •  Len Drinkell was an original member of the Friends of Colchester Museums and Art Galleries which was founded in 1949. To mark the 50th Anniversary of the Society in June 1999, Len gave a talk at the Annual General Meeting recalling his memories of those first 50 years. Now, thanks to the efforts of our former Newsletter Editor, Peter Constable, a transcript of Len’s talk has been made available for all to read. It can be accessed here, by clicking on the link above.
