I probably found out about the Gosport Society through an accidental link or reference on the Internet, this was probably about three years ago now. The thing that attracted me was the list of events they were advertising, a series of talks that looked fascinating. I got about a years worth in before Covid hit.
Over the previous two years, the normal members have had very little involvement in the club apart from almost irregular news letters and an Annual General Meeting. But I did keep my membership going.
Tonight was the first face to face meeting. And, in fairness the Executive committee organised the meeting very well. It started with a buffet and general natter. The only person standing at the front was the chairman. It turns out the other members of the Committee was sat amongst us. Before doing his presentation, The Chair went through the members inviting to stand so that we could recognise them. He then gave a very informative brief on the activities of the committee over the last two years, and they have been busy.
There was a. Brief rundown of likely activities that were coming up and the promise of a list of presenters arriving soon, along with a significantly revamped newsletter.
It all looks very promising, and I very much enjoyed this evenings meeting.
