President Jane Hart-Simmons with Lawrie, Penelope Pilley, William Anidjar-Serfaty, Jennifer and Roger Stentiford attended the District 1120 Conference in Eastbourne. I wish every member could have been there with us !! Such an interesting and uplifting experience.
After breakfast at the hotel, a full programme of speakers awaited us.
In between Speakers we just had to sample the fish and chips – delicious!!
More inspirational Speakers on Sunday morning (programme and Speaker details on the links below) with time to visit the Hall of Friendship to make helpful contacts. Thanks to Dave Hatcher of Shelterbox for providing items to update our boxes and many others – too numerous to mention – for all their assistance and provision of banners etc etc. Some friendly faces we will see again soon when RC Dover visit next month and some are busy organising a future raid.
Sunday afternoon Jane, Lawrie and Penny travelled to East Croydon to visit PP Tony Nation and his wife Ann. Tony was presented with a picture gift from RC Gibraltar.
A big thank you to Tony and Ann for their hospitality and for taking us to London to visit Tower Hill to see the famous poppy display having travelled by boat up the Thames.
Really looking forward to next years conference which will be held in Bournemouth !
