Club meeting - May: Annual General Meeting & Social Night

The formality of the AGM is only a small part of the meeting and it will not take the whole evening, so the outgoing committee have decided to include a wonderful supper spread of hot savories and cakes etc to form part of the social night. As a club we are extremely active in the collecting world and we have several exciting announcements to be made at the meeting.

Alan Polaschek

Our dear Patron, Alan Polaschek, passed away at Rannerdale War Veterans Home on on Friday, April 30, 2021. We have been so fortunate to have enjoyed Alan's humour and support of our club's activities over the years and as our dedicated club Patron. Alan would have turned 88 in a few days so a good innings considering his battles with his health over recent times and the passing of his dear Patricia recently. The funeral service for Alan Polaschek was held on Friday 7th May at the Transitional Cathedral Christchurch City corner of Madras Street & Hereford Street.

The September club magazine has been placed in the members section of this website.
