Brookes Society Christmas Message

December 2019

Happy Christmas to one and all!

I am delighted to be able to tell you that Brookes Society will be continuing for at least one more year! We had over 70 positive responses to my last email with five enthusiastic members volunteering to join the committee so we have co-opted them until the AGM when everyone can vote. These are Sue Allmond; Sandy Oldfied; Maggie Wilson; Rose Woodington and Lez Zieleznik and we thank them and are looking forward to working with them.

Laura Bartholomew and I met with the Vice-Chancellor last week to update him on the Society and he was delighted that it is going to continue and remains very supportive. He said how much he enjoys attending the two parties and having the opportunity to talk to the members that are there on the day.

We will send out more information in January but please note that the date for the Spring Party and AGM is Tuesday, 17th March 2020.

So many of you responded to my email with such kind words and encouragement for which I and the others on the committee thank you. We will look at the various suggestions you have made for future events and put together a programme which we will share at the Spring Party.

In the meantime I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and hope to see many of you during 2020.

Clare Fox
Chair, Brookes Society
