MESSAGE FROM IRENE: If you want to go on enjoying the fruits of the Social Committee’s labours PLEASE HELP! We are a small dedicated team and we do need HELP!!! Too often members do not consider the constant effort that this small band, also members, put in year on year – and just sit back and take. Our efforts make a positive contribution to the Forum and its members. We are now asking for YOUR HELP!

London is a treasure trove of free or very inexpensive places to visit, especially when using your Freedom Pass. We are looking for some possible events in 2019 going out to London’s lesser known but exciting sights. If you have an idea and would be prepared to organise just that one – a favourite perhaps of your choosing, with considerable help from members of our experienced team, please contact Irene by email at or by phone on 020 3715 0946. Volunteering is a great way to use your abilities, meet friends and feel good about it!
