Dear Fellow Member

It gives me great pleasure to write to you, as your newly elected Chairman, my first event a visit to the Postal Museum, which will take place on 22 November 2017 starting at 11am, details are on the Events section of the website.

It was delightful to see so many familiar and some new faces at the AGM on the 9 October. Thank you all for your continuing support and thank you to those of you who completed the contact details form and for those who have yet to do so, a copy should be in your email. I want to make sure that members are not missing out on communications about the Clubs’ activities because we have out of date information.

I have two other items of news to share with you. Firstly, we are indebted to Matthew Hampson for having done a terrific job in completely updating the Clubs’ website. This will go live very soon and will have details of all the forthcoming events. Can I please encourage everyone to send in photos of those events you attend and if you have any interesting news or items you would like to share then please send them on as well.

Secondly, we were in incredibly fortunate to have the services of Mike Williams, a professional photographer, to record the Civic Lunch at Mansion House. We were able to obtain his services free of charge in the expectation that people would be ordering photographs to remember the event. The photographs are available to view and order from his site at Hover on ‘Images’, then click on ‘City of London / Livery’, click on the folder ‘Dowgate and Vintry Ward Club Civic Lunch’. The Club will be ordering some photographs which will be posted on the website. I apologise to members who are not able to access the internet themselves but I am sure you know someone who can.


I very much look forward to seeing you in November, at my first event.
