July 2021 events update

Two steps forward and one step back!

Dear All,


I have been continuing to consider how we may salvage some of our social calendar, particularly the events we had planned to hold in July. Continuing to delay events due to Coronavirus guidance potentially means that we cannot fit everything into the calendar in the short term.


For this reason, Christopher and I propose that the President’s Mass and lunch afterwards will be moved to the weekend that had previously been planned for the BBQ; the BBQ will be cancelled. As before, the President’s Mass will be held at St Mary’s Church in Alton with lunch afterwards at Christopher and Ann’s house.


For clarity, the programme now becomes:

  • Past President’s Dinner – was planned for the 17th July is now postponed and will be rescheduled once restrictions are released.

  • Circle Meeting – It is hoped that the first post pandemic face to face (hybrid) meeting at the Golf Club will be held on 3rd August, however this cannot be confirmed until the Government relaxes the restrictions.

  • BBQ – Cancelled (was planned for Saturday 21st August) – President’s Mass now on this weekend.

  • President’s Mass - Sunday 22nd August: 11am Mass at St Mary’s Church Alton followed by coffee in the church hall, then lunch hosted by Christopher and Ann at their home in Isington near Bentley. There is no charge for this event as Christopher and Ann will be providing the food and drink, but donations to the President’s charity will be accepted and be most welcome.

  • Mill at Sonning – Was going ahead but now postponed again; Further information has been sent in a separate email to those people booked on this trip.
