Social Secretary’s Report:
Sorry for my absence for a couple of months but a new baby
got in the way. I have been in touch with the New
Continental Hotel about our Ladies night and they can
accommodate us on the weekend of XXXXXXXX. They are going to
e-mail me with prices for around 60 people at about £30 to
£40 a head.
“My lad is back in Stonehouse, do you want me to see if they
can fit us in”?
“If you can please that would be great. That’s it from me”.
Constitution is going well, changing just a few little bits
and pieces, it will be ready for next months meeting for
people to have a look. It will be ready for the AGM so that
gives you a couple of months to have a read and a think
about it and give me some feedback.
The last meeting held in XXXXXXX was a great night, I think
everyone enjoyed themselves and in my opinion, we gave a
fantastic insight into what our Association is about.
Whether or not it was successful remains to be seen. I know
the majority of the POs Course are Pompey Natives so I hope
our migration over the Tamar River may have helped the RNGIA
with potential new members for them and our new Killicks
will join us.
GIs Nutt (65 on the 1st), Lester (8th), Evans (12th) &
Luker (75 on the 19th). Happy Birthday.

because he’s just done a speed
awareness course. He’s 91 and drives to Pompey twice a
Just to remind you all about “fun in the field” if you can
