A roundup of all National and Group News


Published by National Chairman on 18th Dec 2014

We are back at the Kings Court Hotel, Kings Coughton, Alcester B49 5QQ.

Refreshments will start the ball rolling, that's at noon. A 1.00pm the meeting starts with the Prize Presentation; after that the meeting itself. It's a small agenda this time so it shouldn't be late before it's time to go home.

All the prizewinners will be invited so it's possible that one or two will turn up. All awards not collected that way will be passed to the delegates who, in turn will distribute them to members of the Group.

The date's easy to remember: SATURDAY 31 JANUARY 2015

Changes to Wessex Group Officials

Published for Wessex Group by General Secretary on 13th Dec 2014

Wessex group has been required to make drastic changes in the Group’s officials following the breakdown in health which has forced Ken Blowe to step down from his role as secretary and treasurer; a task which he carried out assiduously for 34 years. Ken was in hospital for most of October, suffering complications following what was expected to be relatively minor stomach surgery but which, due to complications, kept him in until 10th November.

The following officials were elected at the subsequent Group AGM:

  • David Collard-Berry - Chairman
  • Peter T Warhurst - General Secretary. Peter also continues as Group Recorder.
  • Norman Harvey - Membership Secretary
  • Mary Corbett - Treasurer

Full details can be found on Wessex Group's Officials page.

Norman Harvey is also organising the Group prize presentation lunch which will be at The Royal Winchester Hotel, Winchester on Sunday 15th February 2015. The cost is £17 per head. Bookings, with cheque, to Norman.

The subscription for 2015 is £12, and entry for multiple standards £12, with single distance entry £3.50. Cheques in payment of subscriptions and/or standards should also be addressed to Norman Harvey.
