Rift Valley - 17 Mar 1928 - 'This morning I tried to get on by telephone to the Club for half an hour with no result. I suggest that either the telephone be moved or an extension bell be fitted to where it can be heard.' [supported by C.B.P. Fitzgerald & D.C. Venning]
Rift Valley - 13 Apr 1928 - 'On this day we the undersigned took the liberty of taking a table from the dining room to the verandah for our lunch. We found this to be most comfortable cool and quiet. We realise that this is not possible every day owing to climatic conditions but we do urge that when possible a certain number of tables should be provided on the verandah for lunch or any other meals which may be suitable. The accoustics in the dining room are so bad that it is a great relief to be able to have meals in quietude.' [signed by Cyril A. Ward, V.F.C. Peto, R.S. Muttlebury & unknown]
