March Country Meeting 2018

Farnham 10 March

Over 60 members participated on the day with 59 attending the meeting.

We elected and welcomed Rosalind J Burrough and Annabelle F Frost as new members.

We also remembered Howard Oglesby and Christine Andrew who recently died.

Alan Regin, who had been honoured in the New Year with an MBE, had been to Buckingham Palace that week to be presented with his medal by Prince Charles, and he brought the medal to the meeting to show members.

Congratulations were offered to Matt and Jessie Hetherington on the birth of their daughter, Eilidh.

The day finished with a very convivial and delicious meal in The Mulberry conveniently located near the station. Thanks very much to Mark Place for all his hard work.
