To date I have 68 members who have said they wish to attend. I thank you
for your replies.
Our branch needs new members and also old members to try and support the
branch as much as possible. I don't expect people to turn up every month
but it would be nice to see those members we haven't seen in a while.
I would like to say a special thankyou to those members who live quite
a way from The Onward club who make the effort Col Malcolm Hill TD (Shropshire),
Harry Morton (Leamington), Brian Care (West Bromwich), David Robinson
( Redditch), John Cahill (Brownhills), Andy Dalton (Spain). It is very
much appreciated by myself and all the committee for you "going the

Staying once again at The Falcon Inn. Bonnie will shortly be booking up
