CHANGE OF DATE: SEPTEMBER PUB EVENING WILL BE THURS 20TH
Message from Susan Quinn
September is now upon us and with that our first pub evening of the new season. The date for our next meeting will be Thursday 20th September and not the third Tuesday of the month which is our usual date. It was originally planned that our speakers for our September pub evening would be our three Westminster City councillors but due to unexpected conflicting meetings our councillors cannot attend but will be joining us instead on Tuesday 16th October. However I am pleased to say that we do have another speaker for that evening and I hope as many as possible of you will be able to come along.
Our speaker will Stephen Spavin, the Outreach and Befriending Support Co-ordinator for Age UK Westminster. As I am sure you are aware Age UK does a great deal of valuable work in the community and Stephen will speak to us about some of the activities, services and projects that they provide. In particular he is involved in the Befriending programme but will also be able to provide a broad overview of the other work that is done by Age UK in our community.
We will meet as usual in the upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub on Strathearn Place from 6.15 – 8.00pm on Thursday 20th September. It will be a good opportunity to meet up with friends and neighbours after the summer break and to enjoy a drink or two in a most convivial atmosphere. As this is our first get together after the summer we will also devote some time to discussing any issues that you would like to raise with the HPEA or would like us to be aware of. This is the place to air your views and help us to make our community the best possible place to live.
So please NOTE THE DATE – and I look forward to seeing you at the Victoria on the 20th.
We look forward to seeing all members at our 2018 AGM at the Royal Lancaster Hotel at 7pm on Monday 8 October.
Doors open at 6.30pm for registration and we invite all to stay for drinks and canapes afterwards.

The April pub evening has been postponed from 17th April to the following Tuesday 24th. The topic is local policing issues and we look forward to welcoming a member of our local police team, who will update us on current news and developments. We will have an opportunity to raise issues with them and ask questions.We are delighted to return to the Victoria pub following its recent refurbishment – please do come along and inspect the improvements! The times at the Victoria have been brought forward slightly and we now have the room from 6.15pm to 8.00pm, so please arrive a little earlier than previously. We will have to get used to the new timing but please assume that our speaker will start soon after 6.30pm.We are especially grateful to Susan Quinn as always for making the arrangements for the pub evening and particularly in the present circumstances.
