Northwest News

10th June 2013

Dear RFAA Members,

As some of you will know, our National Chairman, Frank Andrews handed over the North West Group baton to me at the recent AGM.Whilst I appreciate that, as the smallest branch, we could never achieve the level of social get-togethers enjoyed by other branches, I would however like to organise a short meeting followed by a luncheon in the Autumn to which guests would be most welcome.

As our NW membership stretches from Cumbria to the Lleyn Peninsula, I feel that Chester would offer the most suitable meeting point being situated on good road and rail links from all directions.

With the agreement of Captain John Sail, Midland Chairman, I am sending this letter to all members living in the North West even if they are not currently assigned to the NW Group. For information, Joe Anderson is proposing to form a new Yorkshire Group and will be contacting interested members shortly.

I would be most grateful if members who would be interested in attending a luncheon could let me know their views on Chester as the venue, a preferred day of the week, etc. I would also suggest a small raffle and perhaps a nominal gangway fee as is common with other branches in order that we could establish funds to cover postage, printing and any other incidentals.

In order that I can make some preliminary enquiries, I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. I would be grateful if you could also let me know if you are not interested in receiving any further NW Group communications.
