Unfortunately due to terrible weather and the fact that so many members of the troop were ill, we were unable to hold our usual Christmas Dinner and break-up meeting this year. We will instead hold something similar on startup in the New Year.
 

2014 is now upon us and we look forward to our volunteering duties in the coming months.


God Guard Thee and All Who Serve.
Yours in service.

Sir G. B. Metcalfe KGCIOM., MCM., AMM.
Chief Commissioner.
