Sadly, we must report the death of one of our
most popular members, Phil Battaglia. Phil had been an active member of the group since the early eighties and rarely missed a meeting. An engineer by trade, before it became common practice for appliance companies
to cut appliance flanges for patients, Phil produced special flange cutters for members. Phil's family have kindly requested that donations in memory of Phil should sent to Swindon IA and donations amounting to
£185.70 have been received to date.
This year's AGM & Christmas social will
take place on Sunday, 1 December at 2:00 pm at Lawn Community Centre, Swindon. After the AGM business is concluded, we shall be entertained by keyboard player, Cliff Cross, enjoy a free buffet tea and test our
general knowledge in a fun quiz. As ever, there will be appliance representatives in attendance at the start of the event. Any prizes for the event raffle would be most welcome!
Please come along and support your committee at
this our most important meeting of the year. It is becoming imperative that we recruit new committee members to help in the running of our charity and we urgently need a minutes secretary. Interested? Please contact
either the chairman, Frank Williams or our secretary, Martin Brien.
