Has there ever been a world without teddy bears – how did we become attached to these furry friends and what is this all about?
Belinda Knox Spinks is a published author and photographer and she still has the teddy bear that she was given when she was young enough not to remember not having one!

In her talk about the history of teddy bears, Belinda will talk about their origins, what role they play in our lives and their supportive values to us humans. Do men and women both continue their allegiances to teddy bears? Find out more during this talk!

All our speakers are able to give their talks via Zoom but we are hoping to be able to resume our meetings in the Village Hall as soon as it safe to do so. Details will be posted on our website.
