Katie our Chairman unfortunately missed last month’s meeting due to illness. We all wish her a speedy recovery to full health as soon as possible. So I am filling in the details of April’s luncheon which was an enjoyable affair, helped along with the incredible enthusiasm of our speaker Anthony Climpson OBE, who let us know what is happening in the New Forest, and the new venture he is marketing… “Go New Forest.”
This month’s Luncheon is unusually the fourth Friday of the month, Friday 26th May, as Chewton Glen have a large corporate booking on our normal third Friday. this will also occur next month for the same reason. so our June luncheon and sports morning will be on Friday 23rd June. Please put it in the diary.
For those of you who wish to participate in Golf and Croquet, detail will be sent out within the next couple of weeks.
We will also be sending out detail of our “Sailing Day” and for those of you have shown interest, will require your commitment so as to book the Yachts for the day.
Just to confirm the date will be Friday 18th August at Lymington Yacht Haven.
On behalf of Katie Young
