What’s On

AN URGENT MESSAGE TO MEMBERS

Dear Members

On behalf of your Committee, I have to advise you that coffee mornings at the cottage, committee meetings and branch meetings are suspended.  I hope this does not disappoint too much and I hope we can resume everything some time in the not too distant future.   The May AGM is postponed until it is felt safe to hold it.  I am sure you have kept up with the latest COVID-19/corona virus news on television, radio and in the newspapers.  We have a duty of care to our membership and should not be encouraging, or putting pressure upon you, to attend at this time.  

Do please follow the Government guidance to keep yourself safe.

These are strange and unusual times.  We must and will get through this.  The focus has to be on your health and that of your families.  Do take care and minimise those risks as you can. 

With best wishes,

Doug May

1 thought on “What’s On”

  1. My late father was in the merchant navy from 1935 until the mid 1950s and I have found a great deal of records for him, one thing I can’t find is any record of him at the Portishead nautical school I have visited the museum in Bristol but nothing. His name was John Thomas Churchill always known as Jack from Weston super mare. The other question is I think that his father Carl Claude Churchill might have been in the merchant navy sometime after leaving the Royal navy in 1906 but I can’t find any records for this time, if anyone can offer some advice on this it would be much appreciated. Best regards Rob Churchill.
