Monthly Meeting 16 January 2019

The Chair, Graham Jermyn opened the January monthly meeting by wishing everyone a Happy New Year and welcoming 114 members and guests and 6 new members who were introduced to the audience.

  • Two important dates were mentioned.

The first relates to Membership Renewal. Packs will be sent out during the next couple of weeks and members will be able to either renew via the post or pop into Beccles Public Hall on Friday 15th March between 9 am and 12 noon where they will be able to renew their membership, have a cup of tea or coffee and meet some group convenors. Members can also renew by the March (20th) and April (17th) monthly meetings.

The monthly meetings nearly always take place on the 3rd Wednesday in the month. However, the December meeting will clash with the pantomime this year so the December meeting will take place on December 11th 2019.

  • Arrangements for outings trips and events are well under way. Next up is Anglesey Abbey on 4th February. Price including transport is £40 reducing to £25 with National trust membership.
  • Thursford has been booked for 11th November and a deposit of £10 will secure your booking but numbers are now limited.
