Southern Branch

News From The Southern Branch

The Southern Branch is one of the largest branches with a membership of approximately 85.

We cover a large part of the south, incorporating the postcodes BR, BN, CR, GU, KT, RG, RH, SE, SL, SW, SM, TW, UB, W and WC.

We hold Branch meeting approximately every 3 months. We try to locate the meeting around the membership area and incorporate a visit that will be of interest to a group organiser. Our January meeting is held over the National Showcase weekend and the September meeting incorporates the Branch AGM and is usually a weekend affair. WE are also trying to introduce two or three social meetings a year.

We have a newsletter which is sent out between branch meetings, keeping everyone up to date with what is going on within the branch.

Our next meetings. 

The next Southern branch meeting will take place in July. We will be the guests of Daish's Holidays when we visit the Claremont Hotel in Eastbourne on July 23rd. Julia Pearce from Daish's has kindly offered to lay on refreshments for us, including lunch and there will be an opportunity to have a look around the hotel.
