Lunches for Retirees

Sadly the “official” Chevron sponsored Retiree Lunch programme ended in 2016 but thanks to the efforts of local organisers some  lunches were held in the autumn of 2017 Whilst the numbers of attendees was down(no doubt due to having to pay!) the level of enthusiasm was such that plans are in place for an expanded lunch programme this autumn.. CUKPA are delighted to play a part in helping to promote these reunion events.As Insight goes to press mid April these are the latest plans. Further updates will appear on the CUKPA web site if organisers contact web master Dave Poulter.
