Social Secretary’s Report:

Only the Prez  G I Potts  and G I Luker at the moment are going to the Ladies night so they will be heavily subsidised by the association. Arrive at the front doors of the Aquarium  by 19:15 for a 19:45 sit down.  We need to be out of the dining area by 22:30 as this is the time the fishes go to sleep. G I Baker will step into my shoes just before the dinner to ensure a smooth running of the event. Dress Is Black tie for Gents smart frocks for the ladies. Our patron Sir Richard Ibbotson is attending.

The Mason’s lodge in Stoke has been booked for the Gentleman’s evening 7th November and I am probably off to India again in the first week of November.
