Urgent Information for Members

This area at the top of the Newsletter page is reserved for urgent information and warnings for our Members.

We try to keep up with the more frequent scams going round,  and definitely it could be said

that these come in and out of favour as time goes by.


We are happy to include an edited version of our latest Newsletter here.

It is sometimes necessary to remove names,  contact details, costs

and other details but if you are an existing member of the LEPC you

will already be aware of where you can obtain this missing information.

If you are not a member and think you might be eligible please go to the contacts

page and complete the contact form there.

Also, in the Printed and Email versions of the Newsletter all detail of forthcoming

events and welfare matters is included.  Since there are pages allocated on this website

for both,  there seems to be no need to duplicate this information here as each has its own allocated space.

Our newsletter is sent to all registered members. However, sending it by post is a labour-intensive process.

so we are making an effort to persuade members to take it by way of an attachment to an email instead.

We have managed to increase the number of those who receive their copy this way, but it is still likely

to be fewer than the total number of members who have email accounts.  If you can receive your copy

this way please get in touch via our contact page.  Also, if you are thinking of changing your email address

or have done so recently, do please advise us of this change.


Newsletter Autumn 2023

Opening from the Chair


From the feedback offered to me, I know that we have had some great trips so far this year.

Thank you to all those that got in touch, your feedback is important.


As so many were disappointed with our May trip being cancelled I have managed  to fit in a lunch time trip on  The Tereza Joanne Barge.  The date is Thursday 29 November and the info is included later on the Events page.

I hope you find our forthcoming trips of interest so please do complete your applications as soon as possible.


Hot off the press is the news that the Barclays Carol service at Southwark Cathedral will this year be held on Monday 11th December with an earlier start time of 12 noon,  so don’t get caught out by that.


And on the subject of trips/events, in future Carol will from now on respond asap if you are successful.


The sun is still shining but not so for your Committee.  We desperately need one of you to come forward to take up the role Eddie is retiring from.  If the Welfare position is not filled it will impact on our over 80’s group, Welfare, and also any fundraising we do for the future. This will of course change the dynamic of your Club going forward.

Please give serious thought to our plea and do get in touch if you feel you can spare a few hours a month. Thank you.

For Welfare please go to the Welfare Matters page

Finally, we are all being bombarded with correspondence and email regarding GDPR

regulations, but have to bring this to your attention!
