From the Editor: May 2013


At the March meeting Anne raised the point that a long time member, although not recent, Victor Stagpoole had passed away. The sympathies of the Club go to Victor’s family.

It was also mentioned that one of the presenters from last month’s meeting, Lansdowne’s Derek Hagar Jnr, passed away on Easter weekend. Derek junior was only 48 years old, an untimely death. The Club passed on it’s heartfelt sympathy to Derek Senior and Margaret.


And of course another important meeting this month with the AGM. We are happy to get feedback from members about the way the club is being run, about future ideas for events, and of course, indications of any potential new committee members. One committee member at least will be standing down.

Come along, have your say, and enjoy a snack and some nice wines. The agenda is included on page one, and last year’s minutes are attached. Please print these and bring them with you. A few copies will be available on the night but we are trying to cut down on costs to committee members.

Special General Meeting

The minutes from the Special General meeting held at the start of the March meeting are being progressed and I will forward these under separate cover shortly.
