RAF Museum

On the 5th November, a group of around 24 Club Members, partners and guests, had an outstanding day visiting the RAF Museum at Hendon. We saw an astonishing quantity of airplanes, from Sopwith Pups to Vulcan Bombers, and everything in between. The Museum has hundreds of planes on display, all in pristine condition and all explained in the context of their place and role in RAF Operations through the last 100 Years. Informative, compelling, uplifting and also hugely nostalgic. The lunch was very good too.

Chosen Charities 2019

Visit to Greyfriars Vinyard - Puttenham

On 13th August, a large group of 41 Club members, partners and guests, visited the Greyfriars Vineyard at Puttenham. What an excellent day out. We were brilliantly hosted and entertained by, Aaron and Ed, two very passionate winemakers, who were our guides and mentors for the afternoon. The views across the north downs were wonderful, especially with row after row of chardonnay and pinot noir vines catching the eye. We learned about the history of the vineyards, and tasted 5 of their excellent sparkling wines, plus a rose and a limited edition Red. We discovered how sparkling wines are made, and enjoyed a very tasty tea of local charcuteries and cheeses. Several bottles were bought which testified to the quality of the wines produced at Greyfriars. A splendid day out! Thank you John for organising the day.

   

   

SASHI ELECTED - TWICE

What a week for Sashi Mylvaganam. First he was elected to be our new Chairman for 2019/2020, and then a few days later he was elected to be a Councillor for Surrey Heath Borough Council. Popular boy. Well Done Sashi. We look forward to the start of the revolutions in both 41 Club and the Surrey Heath Council. He is very well connected too.....In the photo, he is on the left (like his politics!) and has the new Mayor of Surrey Heath, Robin Perry (above him), the Manager of the England Rugby Team, Eddy Jones, alongside him...and our very famous Fundraising Chairman, David Rushmer, a couple of steps away.

Charities Cheques Presentation

On Tuesday15th January, Chairman Roger Holdaway, and Fundraising Chairman, David Rushmer presented cheques for £2054.91 each to our supported Charities and Good Causes in 2018. Needless to say, Disability Initiative, The Hope Hub, Surrey Young Carers and The All Night Café, were absolutely delighted.
