It was agreed that this new Group should be run by the members of the Group, Don Jordan is the Co-ordinator and will offer support in the background. At the first meeting we laid out guidelines as to how the group should be organised. We agreed we would have our days out on the first Thursday of each month. It was hoped to have contact only through email, unfortunately this was not practical, as not all members are on online.
Over this last two years it appears that it has fallen on some members of the group to lead a numbers of outings, so it has been agreed at the last programme meeting all members would be expected to lead at least one outing every 18-24 months. In this way organising outings are shared fairly within the group.
A six month programme was agreed, with various members agreeing to lead on different occasions. So the leader of the group would be responsible to organise that day, meet up points, travel arrangements, and where refreshments are available. The members were all sent a print out of the programme, detailing who was running each outing and an email contact address.
Those who do not have an email facility will phone the Group Leader to find out the arrangements. It will be the members' responsibility to contact the leader to find out information, not the leader's responsibility to contact each member.
So far we have visited The Jewish Museum, Kensington Palace, Richmond, Lambeth Palace and enjoyed a boat trip to Greenwich.
If, for some reason, the leader cannot be contacted, members can contact Don on
