R.I.P. 2 – Stewart Band

It must be the time of year…. message from Peter Robinson, follows.

I have just received the sad news that Stewart died of cancer on Sunday 24th November.  He was a founder member of Lichfield District RT 1200.

I remember sitting close to him at a Table meeting in 1975, when he introduced himself.  I asked if he had a daughter called Alice.  After Barry Harris guffawed, Stewart eventually saw the humour in my question.

Chairman’s Update

Greetings Gentlemen, and I hope you are all well.

As mentioned at the last meeting, on 9th December Wolverhampton Round Table 17 is celebrating its 90th Charter, and sadly closing as well.

This is a one off chance to attend the last meeting of one of the oldest Tables in the country. I’ll be going and would be happy if anyone else can come along as well – cost is £25, and it’s at South Staffs Golf Club on 9th December, 7 for 7:30pm. I need to confirm numbers and pay now, so please get back to me as soon as possible.
