Pictured are last year’s President of Malvern Circle, Jeremy Kearns receiving a contributory cheque from Di Walsh on behalf of the Circle Ladies towards his chosen charity, the RNLI. A grand total of £500 was raised during the year. Jeremy is a keen sailor and values the services provided to sailors around the coast of Great Britain.
In order to keep us occupied during lockdown, we decided to hold a garden competition to see how Brothers and wives had improved their gardens during this time. Pictured is the award of a £25 garden centre voucher to the winner, last year’s President Jeremy Kearns, who, with his wife Geraldine, had made the biggest impression on their garden. On the right, making the award during our second post-lockdown ladies’ evening, is Vince Conway, Press and Publicity Officer for the Circle.
Pictured are some of Malvern Circle Brothers and wives enjoying our first post-lockdown ladies’ evening. The Circle decided to postpone the first formal meeting until later and instead to entertain our ladies to dinner at the meeting venue. We were required by the hotel management to observe social distancing throughout as you can see and wore our very attractive masks before and after dinner. We were expecting Brother Director John Minister to honour us on this special occasion but unfortunately the dreadful weather prevented this. Sadly we also observed a minute’s silence before the meal to remember two recently deceased and long-standing Brothers – Stan Williams and Paul Mitchell. RIP.
During a recent holiday to New Zealand I came across a rather large chain at the bottom of the South Island which immediately put me in mind of our Organisation. Is this taking “Catena” to extremes?
Pictured are members of Malvern Circle, wives, friends and families puzzling over the questions in this year’s quiz. The identification of the County flags of England in particular resulted in a few head scratching.
This year the evening, which included a grand raffle, raised some £300 for the President’s charity – the RNLI. Whilst Malvern is far from the sea, the President, Jeremy Kearns, is a keen yachtsman and values their services.
