41 Club National Newsletter July 2021

Dear Member, I am sending the attached July Newsletter direct to everyone.

Firstly an apology that it’s late this month – the perils of work intruded.

It’s a full newsletter loaded with details of spectacular feats of fund raising (take a bow Kilsh and Steve Lord but they are no means alone). To everyone who has done spectacular feats to raise money for the National President’s Charity, Dementia UK, well done. It’s also full of details of the various weekend breaks on offer – including The 41 Club Big Weekend in October. And a first report on the 41 Club National Car Rally in Kent at the beginning of the month.  But that’s not all – there’s a feature on Welfare, and reports from various clubs, and and and – did I mention the Whisky, or the Beer, or the Wine Tasting? Is it any wonder that it’s late this month with so much in it?

Don’t forget to join me on Zoom this Saturday for the latest 41 Club Wine Club Wine Tasting – expertly paired with cheeses by Roger Hanley.

Read the Newsletter – enjoy it – and remember 41 Club is about #ContinuingToDoMore

Keep safe

Yours in continuous friendship

Message from the Chairman

Chairman Dave has asked me to inform members that, due to changing circumstances, the planned August Nag’s Head BBQ and Treasure Hunt has had to be postponed.

It is hoped to hold the event at our normal date for the first meeting of the new year: the third Thursday in September.

More details to come as soon as possible.

Message from the National President: Vaccination Volunteers

Dear  Member,

Chris Allen, the Secretary of North Walsham & District, in Region 17 (Norfolk) has written to me as follows:

“I am a steward volunteer for the vaccination centres, locally and I suspect several 41 members across the UK are doing the same.

The purpose of this email is to request National 41 put out an appeal to all clubs and members to consider, for members to consider registering to become a Steward Volunteer, using this link:
https://nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk/i-want-to-volunteer/volunteer-roles/steward-volunteer 

They are ‘desperate’ for volunteers, every day there are dozens and dozens of requests in my area and across the country which remain unfilled and then have to be carried out by trained medical staff, losing them from where they are needed most. The task is not onerous, usually around a 4 to 6 hour shift, a volunteer could greet those coming for a vaccination or show them where to go, wait etc, with some sanitising required, masks and disposable gloves are provided together with a volunteer tabard. This really is vital work, so I do hope our national organization will consider this and send an appeal to all clubs.” 

Well, I agree with Chris – three members of my own Club have been volunteering; as well as many more members (and their partners) in Clubs throughout Great Britain and Ireland, including members of the National Board and National Council. The need for volunteers is increasing rather than diminishing so now is indeed a great time to point out to all our members how they can volunteer; hence this email to each of our members.

Chairman’s Chosen Charity for 2021-22

Our Chairman has chosen The Rainbow Centre as his selected charity for the Club’s support during 2021-22.

The Rainbow Centre was established in 1997 to offer practical support to vulnerable people in the local community. Since then, they have grown and offer an open door to anyone in need of help with any issues they are facing, offering compassion, support and hope.

Each year they make around 12,500 critical interventions, offering assistance to vulnerable people during their difficult circumstances and beyond.

They are a small team of dedicated staff and volunteers who believe in fairness and equality and they are very grateful for the support of the community in helping them to continue to provide their many services and facilities.

This support can provide assistance such as an emergency food parcel, a hot meal in their community cafe, access to shower and laundry facilities, clean clothing, bedding and other household essentials. They believe people should have access to the most basics of needs.

Dave writes:

My chosen charity for my year in office is The Rainbow Centre, Scarborough. The Charity offers assistance and guidance to all types of vulnerable people, including the homeless, and debt advice. I feel this type of charity will benefit from the level of donations we are able to commit to, having a greater impact than to much to larger charities.

1188’s Record-breaking Sandcastle 1976

Many thanks to Andrew Wilson for forwarding these via Geoff Winn. Geoff has identified a number of the past members, and we went to the 1188 Oracle, Malcolm Smith for the remainder.

Andrew Wilson primed for action.

88 Barbecue, date unknown.

Two photographs from Andrew Wilson sent these two photos via Geoff Winn, who has tried to identify those present. No one, at present, seems to know when or where. Can you help?

L-R: Dennis Hart, Arnold Wilson (Andrew’s father), Geoff Heselton, Harold Wilson plus A N Other.

Geoff W comments on this photo, as follows: Brian Heaps, to the left, front. The ladies at the other side of the table (from left)   ?, Veronica Hart, Sheila Heselton,  ? . I recognise the late Mike Wilson who must have been a guest as he wasn’t in RT, but you will recall he was in Cavaliers. He is speaking to, I think, one of the M & S managers who we probably identified on an 88 AGM photo!  At the very back, to the right of the towel Brian is holding, is the late Geoff Baines, Stuart Baines’ father. Could the tall gent be Denis Chapman?
