Bourne End photo Burnend (first recorded 1236) "End of the Stream" is where the Wye flows into the Thames. Nestling in the Chilterns alongside the river, the village has been the home of papermakers, lacemakers and brickmakers. Today Bourne End is a thriving village close to London and even closer to the open countryside of the Chiltern Hills in central southern England.

Sorry but you have missed this centreTalk In May 2016 our speaker is Dinah Latham. Dinah tells the story of a retired district nurse and midwife reflecting on her life whilst walking with her close companion Harriet, the dog. You will both laugh and cry as Dinah recounts many moving stories of patients cared for in 1960s London. The writings so patently contrast care in the community then and now that it becomes impossible not to regret the passing of a time when nursing was seen as a vocation, when nurses were proud to serve.
centreTalk May 2016 - Dinah Latham book cover

Together Dinah and Harriet share their walks taking the reader through the changing seasons of the Chiltern countryside, while also travelling a new pathway, one with an unfamiliar landscape ... a one way journey into growing old. This is a voyage of discovery, one that promises many unexpected new experiences ... not the least of which is their most recent pastime ... sheepherding!
