A small elite band of people attended the Rochester District Carol Service at Sittingbourne on 15th December. When the District Secretary got there he was reminded of the reason he organised the event for Sittingbourne, to present a 50 Year Membership certificate to Laurence Mitchell. Unfortunately, it had completely slipped his mind and he left the certificate at home.
While at the meeting the District Secretary was also reminded that Hazel Mitchell is owed a certificate from a couple of years ago. This he also did not have.
So, although Laurence was not at the meeting Alan Driver took the opportunity to congratulate both Laurence and Hazel, and thank them for their many years of service.
The certificates will make their way to Laurence and Hazel as soon as I can get them.
