Society Events 2014







Friday 28th
November 2014


From 4.00 pm


F.W. Harvey Society - a very important social and informal meeting to share ideas for the future.

Roger Deeks, founder of the Society and Chair since its inception in January 2010, will stand down from the Committee as from that date.

In the last five years, the Society has brought the name of F.W. Harvey to a new and wider audience; membership stands at over 100.  We need to maintain the momentum because there is much still to do.

Therefore -  we need you!  Please do come along, enjoy talking to fellow members, and let us have your input for the future of the Society.

You just need to come along.   If you cannot attend, but have ideas or suggestions, please contact me by replying to this email, or telephone Marie on 01594 843107.

If you want your Society to continue, your input is essential – and urgent!
