The next meeting is at 2:00 pm on Wednesday 6 February 2019 at Test Valley Golf Club. The club house will be open and serving meals (sandwiches or bar menu) from 12 noon. If you wish to partake of a meal beforehand it would help if you would contact Susanne (Tel: 01489 877200) to let her know so she can inform the club of approximate numbers.

Members will be sorry to learn that Farokh Engineer is unable to attend the above meeting. The Society will now be addressed instead by Hayley Green and John Shepherd (not the cricketer) of the ECB Anti-Corruption Unit. It should be an enlightening afternoon.
