Tamesis Club

Tammy Matters

Dear all

It was a great pleasure to welcome the ladies and gent from the RNLI this weekend, with another selection of goodies and Christmas cards. Report below.

Sadly, I have to report the death of Mike Goldsmith, longtime member of the club.  Details of his funeral are in the post below.

Brian Timbrell our Sailing Secretary has asked all cup and trophy holders to return them this coming Sunday – they need to be engraved for the prize giving on 24th November.

Upcoming events:

Thursday 1st November – Supper and talk on the work done in Bushy Park recently.  Peter Morpurgo is the President of the Friends of Bush and Home Parks, and his talk will be in 3 parts – firstly the history of the parks and then explanation of the two restorations – the Diana Fountain and the Water Gardens.

The will not charge for giving the talk but will bring a donation box and leaflets about becoming a friend with some membership forms.  His talk will last around one hour.
