Cardiff Speakers Club “wins” interclub-debate

This year Cardiff Speakers Club hosted the inter-club debate with the title “This House believes that the UK needs Trident”.

Speaking for CSC and proposing the motion were Nigel P and Terry B, whilst Cardiff Mixed SC spoke against the motion and Brecon SC contributed a floor speaker. After an audience vote, the motion was carried by a single vote!

Congratulations also to Caitlin J (Cardiff Mixed SC) who was awarded the best speaker trophy.

2015 Novel competition

Lloyd & GwilymLast Thursday saw the 2015 club Novel Competition. The idea is that the contestant reads out a 3 minute novelette and finishes on a cliff-hanger. The audience votes on which story they want to hear the conclusion of – so competitors try to leave them wanting more!

Congratulations to John and Gwilym, our runner-up and winner this year.

Gwilym was presented with the Novel competition trophy by Cardiff Speakers Club President Lloyd.
