Mensa chairman JENNY GILL reports from a colourful day out in Yorkshire

 

What an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. First of all the company of 30 Mensans, families and friends and then enjoying an informative Colour Experience at the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) in Bradford - not only a learning experience but an opportunity to experiment as well.

The world’s oldest and most famous high IQ society turns 70 this year – and it seems we’re in good company.

It turns out a lot happened in 1946, quite aside from the formation of Mensa on October 1 in Oxford.
