51th Steamboat Association of Great Britain AGM
Maidenhill School, Stonehouse, GL10 2HA
Doors open 09:00, AGM starts at 11:30 Saturday 12th March 2022
and accessible through Zoom
Once again it is time for us to have our Annual General Meeting and we are pleased to confirm it will be a physical meet in 2022 for those that can. Whilst the ‘nuts and bolts’ stuff to satisfy our Constitution should not take too long we have added a few extras to make the day even more exciting. We will also be endeavouring to broadcast the meet through Zoom to those who cannot make the journey.
Peter Green, skipper and MD of the company running steam launch Alaska on the Thames will be giving us a talk about the restoration of his boat together with his experiences running her in a carbon neutral manner. There will be a Q&A session afterwards when I am sure we will keep him busy!
The ever-popular Auction and the Annual Photographic Competition will both feature again and there will probably be some ‘table sales’ for members who have ‘bits and bobs’ for sale that don’t warrant a full Auction entry.
Mike and Liz Bell will again be running the SBA Garment Shop. Please remember to order via the website well beforehand if you want personalised items brought to the AGM.
There are various accommodation options in the area, but we have negotiated a special rate at the Stonehouse Court Hotel. Space is limited so book early please! If you wish to stay overnight on either the Friday or Saturday (or both!): B&B £110/room double occupancy/£101 single or Dinner, B&B £160 double/£126 single. Please book directly with the hotel and mention Steamboat Association to obtain these rates. Tel: 01453 794950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am booked in for Friday night and will be having a ‘Chairman’s Dinner’ to include all SBA folk who are staying at the Stonehouse Court Hotel (and no that does not mean I am paying for everyone!)
See you there,
John Jewsbury – Chairman
