Last month was the annual June sporting event held in the morning. It attracted 14 golfers and 22 players on the Croquet Lawn.
A big thanks to our special guest Tim Archer who organized the Croquet and gave us an insight into the world of this fabulous summer game.
The lunch was attended by 47 members and their guests, the largest June event since 2009. So far this year our attendance is on a par with 2008 which is great news, we also have many of our members and guests staying on after the lunch which is adding a healthy “Doing Business” in the comfortable surroundings of the Chewton Glen’s excellent facilities. “The Bar!”
This month on Friday 19th July, our Guest speaker is Phil Holt who has spent most of the last three month’s aboard cruise ships talking on various subjects following his international career with Air Traffic Control. This month his subject will be about the most beautiful plane in the world: “The Concorde.”

July will be the last full meeting of Nick Phillips’ chairmanship, so please show your appreciation and support him to the last!
Dress to Impress
A brief housekeeping notice to all. Our meetings are in effect business meetings, and we do like to see the men dressed ideally in a suit or jacket, with collared shirt and trousers, not jeans. We do like to see a tie, but it is optional. Our ladies whether members or guests are always beautifully dressed, so we should complement them by dressing accordingly.
So when inviting guests do remind them of the dress code.
We have just secured the services of our special guest speaker for our 30th Anniversary Luncheon in the “Lake Suite” for November. Sally Taylor MBE. (BBC South news presenter) has agreed to celebrate with us at our special luncheon.
