The Marconi Veterans committee meets a few times each year mainly to organise the Annual Reunion but at the same time to gather news of veterans and of course to prepare information for our annual newsletter.
We ask all Marconi Veterans to let us have regularly items of interest to other veterans, in particular activities, families and of course births and deaths – anything which might be of interest to others. Please dig deep and send our incoming newsletter editor Mark Watson-Lee these snippets. He will accept any item at any time throughout the year. His email address is:
The MVA Committee also has an appeal to make. We would like any veteran to undertake on behalf of the Association some of the duties of the following:-
a) Lecturer or Speaker to organisations such as schools or U3A organisations. (This requires somebody to visit and present a slide or disc on History of Marconi. Expenses are in most cases payable by whoever makes the request).
b) Press Officer. Somebody to prepare small articles covering important events and send to local Press.
c) Liaison Officer. There are excellent contacts by MVA with local civic authorities and other similar organisations but we need somebody who could take on the responsibility of regular contact with these people to promote the activities of MVA and also to advise our committee on possible assistance with them.
You do not have to be a committee member of MVA and would attend MVA committee meetings only when necessary. If you feel you could help out with any of the above please contact Secretary Colin Fletcher at:
