AGM, Council etc – update

Officers’ reports are now available on the AGM page.

Not many sleeps now until the AGM, which is on Wednesday 24th April at WHGC. Please check out the calling notice here, especially if you are excited about filling a role on the Council.

Don’t forget to book in or apologise to John Godson by Thursday 18th April.

Thinking of our well-dressed Council members, some of you may remember The Style Council from the ’80s. It was formed by ex-frontman of The Jam, Paul Weller, and Dexy’s Midnight Runners* member Mick Talbot, who both apparently hated the “rock myth and rock culture” of the day. Decide for yourself whether you prefer The Style Council’s “My Ever Changing Mood” over the Jam’s “Down in the Tube Station at Midnight” and”Going Underground“, or Dexy’s “Geno“.

*Dexy’s was named for dextroamphetamine, the late night drug of choice for Northern Soul dancers to keep them going into the small hours.

Chairman’s Remarks: Jan – Feb 2024

Chairman Colin “Ladies Man” John recalls events over the last couple of months – haggis, Welsh cakes and atomic bombs**. Now there’s a line you don’t often see. Read more here.

Chairman Colin and Tangent Chair Jenny Gray at Ladies Lunch.

Please don’t forget Chairman’s Drinks on Sunday 24th March – let Colin know asap if you will be attending, and any dietary requirements.

**On the subject of atomic, remember the Blondie classic from 1980? It’s not actually about atomic bombs of course. Or is it?

June Organer – update

We have heard that June’s funeral will be taking place on Thursday 28th March 2024 at 11:30am, at Fradley Crematorium

With great sorrow, we learned that June Organer, wife of Terry, passed away at St Giles Hospice on the evening of Wednesday 21st February. June was a past Chair of Lichfield Tangent, and Jenny Tipper told us:

“June finally lost her fight against cancer.  She was a very brave lady, and an inspiration to all who knew her. Terry  her husband and daughters Jill and Caroline were with her”

Terry Organer was a member of Lichfield RT 250 and then Lichfield 41 Club for several years.

We send our deepest condolences to Terry and family.
