Association Events Planned for 2016
At the October 2015 AGM those present discussed future events and, following much debate, decided upon the following three to be arranged for 2016.
Saturday 9th April 2016 – memorial service at the Battle of the River Plate memorial, National Memorial Arboretum probably with luncheon depending upon level of interest. Overnight accommodation could also be arranged.
Malcolm Collis is leading on this event

Town events will take place on the Friday, Saturday & Sunday with other trips being organised by Debbie Steer for the other days.

Saturday 1st October 2016 – a change of venue, and day of week, for the 2016 reunion to the Royal Beach Hotel Portsmouth where we held the 2014 Anniversary luncheon. Accommodation for those who wish to stay over is being arranged.

Members on email will have received notification already for these events but on behalf of your Association please all of you let me know as soon as you can, even if tentative, whether you are able make any or all of these events and if accommodation is likely to be needed. We really do need an indication of the level of support, one way or the other, to allow us to plan for these events.
