Notes on the meeting of 26th January


Our speakers for the evening were Rory Morrison MBE & Andrew Allen representing Sailability, a charity weve generously supported in the past by providing a dinghy. They are hoping that we will help to finance its replacement. Allan gave the vote of thanks.

Guest: Jens Lammering from the Pet Shop on the Parade. Introduced by George.

Club visits: Johnnie (& Mimi) attended Ringwood R.C.s Wine & Cheese evening at Greyfriars Community Centre.  Jeff, Bill & Mike attended Verwood R.C. where retired G.P. Margaret MacDermott gave an inspirational talk about Contesa; a Zambian based charity that supports young people and is a worthy alternative to Afcic.
