Dear Members and Friends
May I first wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and hope that you enjoy a very restful holiday period.
A few reminders for your diaries – I'm really looking forward to meeting up with as many of you as possible in 2017.
I have already written to those of you who are within striking distance of London about the annual meet-up with our friend and member who lives in Japan, Ray Brown. We will be meeting on Thursday 29th December at the Green Man near Great Portland Street and Warren Street tube station. Ray would love to see as many of you as possible there – any time after 12.00pm, although I think the pub actually opens at 11.00am these days. Green Man
Our AGM is due to be held on Saturday 21st January at The Flying Horse near Moorgate Station. The committee would love to see as many of you as possible there at this important event in the life of the Group. Your ideas are vital in helping us to plan the future direction that we should be taking.
If you cannot make the meeting but have any views or comments that you would like to make please send them t me in writing. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
The Canterbury Seminar is booked!!
The dates are Friday 28th (starting at Pinocchio's of course), Saturday 29th, and Sunday 30th April 2017. Please put those details in your diaries.
I am looking forward to it already.
This year we will not be using the Powell Building but another lecture theatre in Canterbury Christ Church University, The Old Sessions House. (See Canturbury link). The facilities are just as good as in the Powell Building. The building is off a road called Longport. The Powell Building is being used, unusually, for Applicant Days on two weekends at that time.

Rekindle your thoughts on the JFK Assassination... HERE
John F Kennedy's Assassination was a defining moment in both the history of the United States and to the lives of millions of people around the world. He was the figurehead for a change of attitudes in a country fast becoming disillusioned with it's foreign policy and desperate for civil rights reform and in a world escalating to nuclear destruction.
President Kennedy was the youngest man elected to the 'White House', and sadly at 46 he was the youngest to die in office. He still represents to a huge majority of the world today freedom, social parity and peace. It is essential that we uncover the truth about his assassination and uphold the the ideals and goals he set out not only for America but the World.
'We in this country, in this generation, 'are by destiny rather than choice, 'the watchmen on the walls of world freedom.' We ask, therefore, that we may be worthy of our power and responsibility, that we may exercise our strength with wisdom and restraint, and that we may achieve in our time and for all time the ancient vision of peace on earth, good will toward men.' That must be our goal, and the righteousness of our cause must always underlie our strength. 'For as was written long ago: 'Except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain'
