 Dear all,

I hope that this email finds you well and that you are beginning to get in the festive spirit. Can you believe that December is less than a week away.

I am delighted to share this month's update with you. You will find a couple of event updates for 2022 including the Star Tavern lunch which is being planned for Friday 28th January 2022. We are also planning on getting the new society handbook ready for early next year. If you have not yet let me know of your change of contact details then please let me know asap as I am now collating the handbook.

We were hoping that we would be able to re arrange the Commemorative Stone Laying Ceremony for January 2022, but it is now looking like the stone won't be ready until spring time. I hope to be able to update you soon with a date. 

Any questions please do let me know.
