Although Val and I were asked, at the last reunion, to arrange a further reunion at Skegness for 2019, I am sorry to inform members that, after consulting as widely and with as many people as possible, it is clear that insufficient members and guests intend to go to make the event viable. I am aware that three room bookings, including my own, have been made and I extend my sincere apologies to anyone who has been inconvenienced.

From my discussions with individuals it seems that many people feel that the event is now too far away for them to travel - age and infirmity being the main problems. Sadly some members have passed away since the last reunion, are seriously ill, or are now unable to drive. Obviously these things are impossible to overcome.
