*** Due to low numbers for this Trip the onboard buffet is not viable. Members who have still to apply need to send £ 38 only. Applicants who have already paid £ 50 will be reimbursed £ 12 in cash on the gangplank to enable them to purchase food on the ship. ***
As the configuration of the Shieldhall has been changed it is no longer possible to accommodate 60 people in the Saloon. The Company have offered to section off part of the covered awning deck for our use. This is on the upper deck and provides a better vantage point. To facilitate this arrangement Paul Wootton would like ten volunteers from the applicants to meet him at the gangplank at 9 am. in order to secure the area set aside for our usage. Please insert a contact phone number on the back of your application
Urgent reguest for volunteers
We need a Chair to serve from the 2018 AGM. The position of Chair need not be especially taxing. All recent Chairs have undertaken additional committee duties making it appear that the task is greater than it need to be, past Chairs Daphne Howell and Mary Fielding would be happy to give advice
Currently we have no-one willing to organise outings or holidays in 2018 or later years so these events are suspended until we find members willing to offer their services to arrange them. Outings Chairman Corinne Board and Holidays Organiser Valerie Fletcher would be delighted to share their expertise and other former members of the Outings Committee will be pleased to provide support.
We will continue to have a full programme of talks. Our 2017-18 programme starts on Thursday 12th October and will continue until June 2018. The full programme will be published in the Autumn Newsletter which you will receive in mid September.
The Christmas Lunch will be at the Marsham Court Hotel on Wednesday 6th December - the menu and other details will also be published in the Autumn Newsletter together will advance details of the Spring lunch.
The Committee will do its' best to provide a full service for our members, but they do urgently need reinforcements - can you provide them? if so please contact me or any other committee member.
Thank you for visiting. (You are Visitor number 17734 )
