The Chairman, President and Secretary of the branch attended the SE District REA Group AGM on 15th July. The group is under new management and the meeting was chaired by Lt Col Will Robinson RE, CO of 1 RSME Regt and RSM, WO1 Kevin Rank RE.
Each branch attends and reports to the district controller. Our report about branch activity can be viewed here.
When the minutes arrive they will be posted but in summary the role of the group leader was to foster connections in the community and the welfare and benevolence of ex-soldiers was his main concern. The agenda covered benevolence, welfare and finance. All in good fettle.
RSM said that the Corps Memorial Weekend in September, which he is planning is quite special and as such mostly free to veterans. (Please let the secretary know if you are attending as a branch member).
The REA AGM is coming up in October (if you want to go to the dinner on 14th October as a member of the branch, or sapper Sunday please let me know asap).
Dates of events and some details where available are covered in our updated diary here.
