Shipmates from Letchworth & Hitchin Branch recently held a Branch luncheon in order to thank their former Vice Chairman, S/M Bill Poole, for his service to the Branch, and to welcome Mrs Adie Hughes as an Honorary Member.

S/M Bill Poole has moved near King’s Lynn, unfortunately, the King’s Lynn Branch has closed, so Bill decided he wanted to remain a member of Letchworth & Hitchin Branch, albeit at a distance. As a thank you from his fellow shipmates, The new Vice Chairman, S/M John Meacham, presented Bill with a certificate to thank him for all the hard work he has done for the Branch.
