It seems a good time having gotten an email from Margaret last week to try to utilse the wider reach of the blog to try to attract more new people to the Association’s Winter Reunion this November.
If you are an Association regular it’s a wonderful annual opportunity to catch up with friends and if you are new to the Squadron and Association, it’s a chance to meet like minded people, share information and perhaps learn some things about a relative.
As in previous years, accommodation for the reunion event will be in Dolphin Hotel in St. Ives.
The Reunion weekend runs over 2 nights, with an informal dinner on Friday night, before the Reunion Dinner ‘proper’ on Saturday night. After the Dinner on Saturday night there is a raffle (so don’t forget to bring something, somebody else would like to win!) and usually any announcements related to the Association.
The Dolphin has been generous enough to charge the same as they did last year.
The charges for the weekend are as follows:
£118 per person for the weekend for dinner, bed & breakfast
For those staying 1 night the charge is £87.15 per person for a double room, or £71.75 for a single – breakfast is included in this, but the evening meal is extra.
There will be a trip out on the Saturday morning – which is yet to be confirmed, but information on this visit will be available closer to the date.
On Sunday we all move to Mepal village for a service in the Memorial Garden and the laying of wreathes at the village cenotaph before joining the people of Mepal in the chapel for a service of remembrance. There are then refreshments in the village hall.
In order to try to help Margaret and hopefully make the Reunion accessible to more people I have set up an Eventbrite page, which is accessible to the right of this post. Booking a free ticket for the event only indicates an interest in the event and lets us gauge interest – though if you change your mind, please let us know so we can give someone else a chance.
You can book up to 3 Double or Single rooms for the reunion and, as is always the case, these will go, so, to avoid disappointment, book early!!
Hope to see you all at the Winter Reunion……..
