Elizabeth 1 Defender of the Faith Saves Geneva.
This was the title of an in-depth lecture presented by Valerie Offord, Official Archivist at the Anglican Church of Geneva, and Guide at the Museum of the Reformation.

Imagine Geneva being rescued from financial embarrassment by accepting an interest free loan of 30.000 ecus!
The ensuing account of this fascinating, historical episode was quaffed down with generous quantities of white wine, traditional Fondue, and the good humour of all present.
The occasion was further enhanced with the presence of BRA chairwoman, Angela S Meier-Jones and Peter Payne, Hon.Treasurer, who keeps an eye on our financial matters!

Special thanks to Pam Walsh for all arrangements and Les Armures for excellent service.
