Visions of Singapore talk

“VISIONS of Singapore” was the title of the illustrated talk given to members of Ballywillan Men’s Fellowship at their meeting last week. And what visions they turned out to be!

Hugh Hamill, who had visited the island-city last year, presented an enthralling 45-minute description of Singapore, his collection of superb digital images conveying a fascinating insight into life and leisure in this former British colony, now an independent republic.

With some eight million people accommodated in an area around the size of north Antrim, Mr. Hamill’s photos presented a dramatic panorama of a highly-urbanised country with scores of high rise buildings dominating the landscape.

Mr. Hamill in his interesting dialogue spoke of the increasing wealth of Singapore, which is a leading financial centre and has one of the busiest ports in the world.

Following a number of queries from his interested audience, Mr. Hamill was thanked by the Fellowship president, Dr. Michael Gardiner.

This Thursday, members of the Fellowship and their guests will be enjoying lunch in the Royal Court Hotel, Portrush, with normal meetings resuming in Ballywillan Presbyterian Church Hall after Easter.
