chairman January 2019

A belated Happy New Year everyone! We are already well into January 2019 as I write this to you. It seems only yesterday that I was on Blackfriars Bridge surrounded by vast crowds of people (and some friends!) celebrating the millennium. Since the last newsletter we have had the December meeting, with quiz, music and carols and epic Christmas cake and mince pies. Most members who attended seemed to have an en-joyable time but remember, if there are things you would like to see done differently, please come forward ready to implement such changes yourself. As you know we on the committee always act in what we feel are your best interests but, like you, we have many other commitments and are after all volunteers.

So what lies ahead? There is so much both internationally and locally to occupy our minds. Probably looming largest is what will happen about Brexit. I don’t know about you but as an individual I feel increasingly help-less in the face of complicated and confusing information - or the lack of it. We must simply await develop-ments. Closer to home we look forward to continuing good monthly meetings with interesting speakers. At the January meeting Janie Penn Barwell talked about her family’s involvement in World War II.
