Hastings Royal Naval Association

AT our last meeting we held our AGM and the members have voted in a new Honorary Secretary Shipmate Howard Trotter.

He has now taken the burden off our chairman Alan Kemp who for so long has been wearing a number of hats. We wish Howard well in his new post.

The number of members attending our meetings has risen to the dizzy heights of 10 which is very encouraging as only a year ago it was four so a big thank you to our members for your support.

The next big event this year is our 75th anniversary dinner and that will be held on Saturday, May 18 at Azur, Marina Pavilion. Bookings are still coming in so the numbers attending are encouraging.

This may be because of the entertainment which is being supplied by Shep Woolley and his band, so any ex-matlot that fancies a great evening of his music and banter ring to book. You have not got to be a member of the RNA to help us celebrate our evening.

The meeting closed at 9pm. The members then enjoyed the free food and a tot. If you are interested in joining us please ring 01424 4344928.
