Update - January 2018

Wow where has last year gone?

Apologies for not writing for a while but I have been busy with life!! Kids growing up, work and trying to keep things going.

So what have we been up to in the far reaches of East Anglia. The branch has been ticking along and we have 35 members. We still hold our lunches four time a year and members seem to be happy with our gatherings. The committee have been giving talks so we can raise monies for the branch and we are still holding our own. Armed forces day is a big event and we had 8 members running the stall through the day which is held on Lowestoft sea front. It is a great a day as long as the weather is good! At our Christmas lunch we said good by to Tom Ormiston our long suffering BSO and welcomed his replacement Kevin Long. We all hope Tom and Gill have a happy retirement and don’t be strangers you are still welcomed at our lunches.

So for the coming year I can give some dates for our get togethers. Letters will be going out shortly for our AGM which is 20th February at The Burlington Palm court hotel. I hope to see as many of you there as we have to decide what outing we want to do in the summer. Other dinner dates are 19th June and 4th December. So put them in your diary, I will send out letters nearer the time to remind you.

Hopefully we will find time to get to see everyone this year even if it is just a catch up and a cup of tea, but if you have any issues you want help with, I am always at the end of the phone and Kevin is always there to help aswell.

Take care and be lucky, Bob M
