What’s Extra?
A Club meeting, hosted by Professor and Mrs Simon Leather, was held at  Harper Adams University, Newport, Shropshire on 23rd April 2016 (see Photo Gallery). In recent years entomology has become a flagship discipline at the University, and in the morning the Club saw the entomology laboratories and facilities. After a buffet lunch, members travelled to the Roman ruins of Wroxbury for a conducted tour of the relatively new  Wroxton vineyard and a wine tasting.  In the evening the Club convened at the Red Lion pub for the business meeting, followed by an excellent supper.   At the business meeting, the accounts and report to the Charity Commissioners were presented and accepted. The next meeting of the Club will be held on 25th November 2017 at St Albans, hosted by  Dr Chris  Lyal.
The 2017 meeting of the  Verrall Association of  Entomologists was held at the Rembrandt Hotel, South Kensington, on Wednesday 1st March 2017, and as usual we were delighted to welcome overseas visitors­ – including Kara Taylor (granddaughter of the late Roy  Taylor, a regular Verraller from Rothamsted), currently doing and MSc at the Natural History Museum.   Ellen Moss (Newcastle)  
was introduced as having been selected for a  van Emden Bursary winner and as a special guest of the club  The menu for the evening was an asparagus and artichoke salad, followed by roast saddle of lamb and lemon & lime cheesecake.
       In  2018, the Club will be awarding up to 3 bursaries for the event on 7th March at the Rembrandt Hotel, and proposals should be submitted by 10th February.
