Dorking Talking October edition

October’s Dorking Talking is looking at Talking Newspapers across the UK, hearing about an oral history project run by Dorking Museum that wants your memories, and heading to the great outdoors with the Learning & Events Officer for Boxhill. We are also taking care of the comforts of life with a mixture of beers, kitchen gadgets, a warming Greek stew just right for autumn and, of course, Time for Tea. We look sideways at British eating habits 50 years ago, and further back to a British motor-racing legend based in Dorking whose centenary will be celebrated next week with a parade of his amazing racing cars through the town. Top and tail all that with the High Street update and a parable about Grandma’s Teapot and get settled comfortably for us to begin…
