Around the Regions


Eastern Region The region board has met twice this year to consider issues such as region boundaries, finance, membership, report from council of management, develop ment of a region programme and venues. As such we are pleased to announce the following events:

Norwich/Norfolk & North Suffolk AT HOME 10 June 1998

For members of the above captioned areas and indeed any of those members that would like to travel further, the opportunity to meet regional and branch officers, Institute members and the local `captains of industry and commerce'.

This first social and networking event of 1998 will be hosted by local members of the Eastern Region board - Mike Barnes (Norwich), Robin Beard, Richard Bridges, Doug Skidmore and John Rivett of Ipswich. From further afield will come other Eastern region board members - namely Ray Martin, Mike Sullivan region chairman and secretary respectively and John Grover, deputy chairman.

The evening's format will be informal to allow maximum contact and discussion between all members and guests.

Members will shortly receive a correspondence regarding this event with a reply slip. Once again early response will assist the organisers with the catering. Further details can be seen in the advert on page 29 of this issue of the journal.

This promises to be a first class evening and members are invited to bring along colleagues and partners.

Summer Sail Event cruise Harwich Harbour and the Orwell and Stour rivers.

Colchester and Ipswich branch on behalf of Eastern region board have organised what they feel is a `Summer Spectacular Event' that they hope will at least equal last year's most enjoyable mid-summer's day visit to Norwich Airport and the cruise on the Norfolk Broads. News from the region board on forthcoming events.

From the advert on page 29 in this edition of the journal you will see that no endeavours have been spared to make the occasion one that you will certainly remember - a cruise on a traditional Thames Sailing barge with all `mod cons' to view the fast developing commercial aspects of Harwich Harbour and the `Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' of the waterside of the twin rivers, Orwell and Stour which will encompass environmental aspects and wildlife.

It is considered most fortunate that the Thames barge Thistle' has been reserved for 11 July, a most popular time of the season. The previous Saturday not being available due to the vessel's commitments to the Annual Pin Mill Thames Sailing Barge Race, a truly spectacular sight to see all the barges competing as if it were the heyday of the barges on the East Coast (pre 1900 on to the 1930's).

Unfortunately we cannot ask the Thistle' owners to provide a complementary lunch and drinks, as we are customers this year and not invited guests as last year's Fly Cruise event at Norwich. Therefore, as lunch time will occur during the cruise we cannot escape making a charge for lunch as well as the cruise - but it will still be excellent value for money at an inclusive price of L16.50 per person. This cost includes a Ploughman's lunch with apple pie desert, there will be a cash tea, coffee and bar service on board.

We had hoped to feature a visit to the Harwich Harbour Authority - Control Tower, unfortunately this facility is being completely refurbished (a sign of increased shipping activity), The Harbour Master and his staff convey their sincere apologies. However, discussions are under way for this visit to feature in the region's programme for next season, as will be the visit to the Lifeboat Station at Harwich and the Royal Hospital School at Holbrook.

The region board look forward to meeting you on board the Thistle' for this promising social and networking event.
