General Meeting

PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR AN URGENT MESSAGE FROM ANTONIA WILSON. 

DO MAKE SURE THAT ALL MEMBERS KNOW ABOUT THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.


Dear Members

Booking Tickets 9am on 19TH APRIL so a very hasty reply needed.
REPLIES TO Antonia Wilson ONLY   aswilson@breathemail.net

The date has been well publicised so I hope to hear from lots of members!
As in previous years it would be great to have a group of members from Guildford to attend the General Meeting, ALL members are welcome.   A group booking for an hotel and trips out – i.e. a holiday!! – can be done but we need commitment quite quickly.

The Full package from MSH is attached and I quote:
Everyone is welcome - members, non-members, young and old. If you haven't been before do come along to find out more about the work of Mothers' Union. Or, if you've been many times before why not bring a friend along with you this time?

At present I have held the hotel from Wednesday 27th September until departure Sunday 1st October.  

Ideally I would like someone to assist as Travel Agent, an honorary title worth several gin and tonics, to co-ordinate this trip.  

In the meantime please reply to me directly – contact details below (NOT TO LESLEY IN THE OFFICE).

Provisionally, I have held 15 double/twin rooms at the Premier Inn Central, Lauriston Street,  Edinburgh, near the conference centre.
