The normal business meeting was followed by a hotpot lunch supplied by Symphony Caterers of Sandbach. 36 members stayed behind for the lunch and all reported favourably.
Graham Hannen reported that all the visits and the annual holiday in 2019 are booked and details will be presented starting in January.
The “This is Your Life” subject was Reg Shallcross, often referred to as Mr Sandbach. Reg had worked in the Post Office for many years before launching into business with his son Philip selling health products on open markets before opening their health shop in Welles St.
Reg was also a founder and Chairman of the Sandbach Transport Festival that this year even included an aircraft.
The guest speaker was unable to fulfil the engagement due to ill health so fellow member Phil Lawrence stepped in with a very informative talk on the risks associated with buying and banking on line. Members were left with much to reflect on.
The Xmas Lunch will replace next months Member’s meeting.
