July news from the Shropshire and Welsh Borders Region.

We have lots of events and shows to look forward to. Find out more from our Facebook page or David Bates ([email protected]) will send you a monthly email newsletter, if he has your email address. We meet every second Tuesday at the Fox and Hounds in Shawbury from 8:00pm. Please introduce yourself if it is your first meeting.

Our May meeting was also our AGM. These are the headlines from that meeting: Those committee members standing for re-election were all re-elected, so the local Committee remains the same. There will be no Regional membership fee for a further twelve months. Membership of the Region continues to increase. A financial report was given. Any suggestions for the chairman’s charity to Martin Edwards asap please. Orders for polo shirts to Ray Searles asap please. Our Facebook page will go public for three months, then we will review the situation. Arrangements for the BBQ and other forthcoming events were discussed. We may arrange a breakfast meet up rather than a Sunday lunch. The Chairman and Committee members were thanked for their efforts over the last 12 months.

For our July meeting we welcome Patch Jobson who will be visiting us. Do come and join us at The Fox and Hounds for this meeting.
