ANNUAL CONFERENCE/ REUNION 2019

The annual Reunion including the conference for 2019 will be held at the Holiday Inn Leicester over the weekend of 22 to 24 March 2019. The conference itself will be on Saturday 23 March 2019.

General

The address of the hotel is Holiday Inn, 129 St Nicholas Circle, Leicester, LE1 5LX.

The hotel is located 5 minutes’ walk from the city centre and has various ale houses to suite all.

Car Parking is right next to the hotel and is run by NCP, a deal has been negotiated for the following options:

£10.00 -  Only 1 entry / exit per 24 hour period

or 

£15.00 - Unlimited entry / exit per 24 hour period.

Make sure you inform the reception when checking in what option you are using.

Spirit Leisure Club

Offering a range of options to burn off some energy or to simply relax and unwind. The club features a Heated Indoor pool, Gym, Spa, Sauna and Steam room all will help to get rid of that fuzzy feeling in the morning. Use of the gym is free to hotel residents.

Accommodation

I have reserved a total of 45 Doubles, 26 Twins, and 44 Singles. I cannot stress the point to much to BOOK EARLY! All bedrooms are accessed by lifts that are well maintained. Disabled rooms are are now called ‘Easy Accessible Rooms’. The showers are of the over the bath type. On the 8th floor they do have a limited number of walk in shower rooms (a 6” step up into shower). Please quote on your application form if disabled and if you would prefer a shower room.

We viewed a selection of rooms and found them all to be clean, spacious and all had TV, with Tea and Coffee making facilities.

Enclosed with this letter are two applications, one for your accommodation requirement(s) and the other for the Saturday Reunion Dinner meal choices. Whilst applications via your secretary are welcome I am happy to accept an application from individual members, indeed that is the preferred method so that I can quickly ascertain the room requirements.

CANCELLATION POLICY FOR MEMBERS

Thursday 14 February is the last date to cancel and receive a full refund.

If you are ill or hospitalised after the 14 February it is at the discretion of the Hotel.

I would prefer full payment up front, but a £50 deposit per person for packages greater than that will be accepted but I do need the FULL BALANCE by Thursday 14 February 2019. I have to declare the room requirements at that time and pass back any rooms not sold.

Meals

The Friday evening meal will be a Carvery with a choice of Roast Leg of Lamb, Roast Pork, Chicken Curry and Vegetable Lasagne. Variance sweets will be on offer.

Saturday afternoon there will be complementary sandwiches and French fries (sorry I’m getting above myself) Buttes and Chips supplied at 13:00. If you require choices of sandwiches that will be at your own expense.

The Saturday evening Reunion Dinner will be a 3 course dinner with a 3 choice starter, a 3 choice main course plus a vegetarian option and a 3 choice desert with 1⁄2 bottle of wine per person and Port for the toast.

Please refer to the ‘Meal Choice’ Form and annotate any allergies.

The Most Important Room – Bar

The bar tariff negotiated is 25% a reduction to their normal prices, this includes all drinks bought across any bar or waitress service.

When buying a full bottle of wine the discount is 20%.

IMPORTANT DETAILS

Please remember to include your Phone number and your postal address so that I can contact you if there is a query. Although this circular and application form will be sent to all those members on email I would ask all branch secretaries to get it out to your members as quickly as you can.

Please send your applications and cheques to Iain Mackenzie at 46 Almora Drive, Dumbarton, G82 1AE. Tel 07403 433 178. Email Please make your cheques payable to the “Submariners Association Reunion 2019” and NOT me. This causes a delay while I clear the cheques through my own bank before I pay the treasurer.

You may pay by BACS/Electronic transfer but if you do please let me know via email. The reunion account is Nat West. Sort Code: 60-13-15 A/C Number: 52930645. Please include your membership number & surname as a reference.

You will be aware that if there is a very low take up by the time I have to declare the room take up to the hotel I will be forced to cancel room to avoid payment for those rooms. This may mean late bookers will find no rooms available at our discounted rate.
