In Memoriam  It is with much regret that we record the death of Mrs Jean McKinley-Bourne. Although never a formal member, Jean was a loyal supporter of the Branch for many years until finally succumbing to the result of a stroke. At this time of writing (15th July) we have no details of funeral arrangements.

Memberships   We welcome Mr Philip Batty as a new member. The limitations placed on us by the Covid 19 lock-down have prevented us from giving him a formal welcome but we hope to do so soon, possibly!!

Some members have experienced difficulties in paying their renewals by DD. If you have a problem please contact Mrs Roberts or Mrs Fear a.s.a.p.

Forthcoming Event  The formal end of WW2 was VJ Day on 15th August 1945. I would ask individual members to remember the 75th anniversary in any way they see fit because the Branch, County and indeed National RBL are unable to do so.  If things improve over the next few months, we will hold our AGM in October. Watch this space.

Gordon Browne        Chairman
