I enjoy the news letter and photos as I have a hobby interest in the Old brigade.

Can't think of any improvements right now but very grateful to the organisers for what we currently have.

Maybe a photographic offshoot, country walking for all who are not as fit as others

I think it's good for information about ex work mates and things that affect retired members.I would like to attend some of the social gatherings but it can be difficult for transport to the venues.I appreciate this has nothing to do with the club but it is good to be able to be in touch with if required with former workmates.I do appreciate the effort that everyone has put in and hope the club will continue to be a source of information and social opportunities for retired members.

Although not having been in a position to attend or support meetings - the efforts being made to keep L&B together are to be applauded.
