Our Reunions

Our reunions are normally held in between the May Day Holiday and the Whitsun weekend.  This year we are going to the Sketchley Grange Hotel in Leicester from the 8th – 11th May 2015.  Friday night is meet and greet night and have some games to raise some money for our designated charities; Saturd evening is dinner and dance, with a raffle of around 70 prizes.  We have got this down to a fine art where it is done and dusted in 20 minutes to enable us to get on with the dancing!!  Stafford-083A  Stafford-089   Stafford-097


Sunday morning is when we hold the annual AGM, and sometimes our heads.

Saturday after breakfast coach is organised for a trip out.  Sunday, after the AGM, we are travelling to the National Memorial Arboretum, to have a Plaque dedicated to all armourers having been posted to St, Barbara’s since the end of World War 2.

RAF ARMOURERS – AKA Kirkham Ex Boys & Armourers Association

Kirkham Ex-Boys and Armourers Association exists for all ex-plumbers regardless of age, sex, size, shape, origin, or rank. The main aim of the Association is to strengthen old ties, renew old friendships and foster new friendships through our re-unions. We also try to keep in touch with those, less fortunate than ourselves, who are unable to attend the re-unions and we also maintain a database whereby members can contact each other. A Newsletter is issued, usually twice a year, and a copy of the latest edition is enclosed.  All personal information will be kept in our database and will not be passed on to any other organisation or commercial enterprise.
