"Timeless Practicality in the sky ..."
Meetings and Events
MEETINGS are on the following dates in 2023 -
16th November, A presentation by Job Hutchings
with some audio tapes that have been found of his father David, well known to us as the saviour of our canal, and leading light of the River Avon restoration to traffic. Job will be giving us more information about the tapes and their significance.
14th December, Christmas Lunch
Our December meeting is the Society Christmas Lunch, renowned as the social event of the year in Inland Waterways circles, mainly because of the high quality raffle and perhaps the Quiz.
Please see Alasdair's emails for further details of booking and selecting from the menu
As always, watch out for emails and
updates to this page.
ARRANGEMENTS FOR MEETINGS
Our new "permanent" home for meetings is the Red Lion at Lady Lane in Earlswood, B94 6AQ. This retains the physical link with our Canal, as it is opposite the only feeder arm the canal has, from Earlswood reservoir.
We assemble for lunch, (if you want) from about 12 o'clock, with the meeting to start about 2.00 pm.
A limitation is the number of people who can be comfortably fed in the side room, which we have exclusively. The room will hold about 20 to eat and perhaps another ten for a talk, but numbers in excess of 20 diners can be served in a reserved section of the restaurant, so we need fairly definite numbers attending a couple of days before the meeting.
To cover speaker's expenses, we have a £1 per ticket raffle at the meetings, with the prize of a bottle of wine.
