The 2021 AGM



Having given the matter much consideration the committee has decided that the AGM this year will be held at St George's Church on Queen Square on 25 September 2021.

The proposed timetable is :

  • 11.30 League Church Service
  • 12.00 Short break
  • 12.15 AGM (agenda to follow)

There will not be a formal speaker this year but it is hoped that the Chief Nurse will be able to make a contribution, and bring us up to date on hospital matters.

We should ( fingers crossed ) be able to provide all members with a link to enable them to watch the AGM at home, if they are unable to attend.

If we follow the 2 metre social distancing rule, the church can accommodate 50 people. It may be possible to increase this nearer the time. Whilst we recognise that this rule is no longer in place we are erring on the side of caution. The capacity for the church is 150.

There are no facilities for refreshments at the church but there are lots of cafes in the vicinity. We are hoping to provide something, if possible, but this has not been finalised.

We all realise that this is not the AGM that everyone enjoys, but considering the current situation we feel this is the best way forward this year.

If you wish to attend could you please let Sonia Harle know via email, giving your name, address, set and mobile phone number. Her email is Harlesonia@talktalk.net

We hope, very much, to be able to return to the normal AGM format next year.

The 2020 AGM

Notes on the 2020 AGM are available in the Members Only Area.

A request for your thoughts/ideas on what makes a paediatric nurse special

At our chapel service before the 2019 reunion and AGM, our chaplain, Jim Linthicum, gave us a project! He would like to hear our ideas about what makes a paediatric nurse so special, and also any thoughts about the special qualities we need.

If you would like to contribute to the project, please email your thoughts and ideas to the Hon Secretary or the Website Manager.

Link Members

We currently have some vacancies for Link Members notably in Kent and Berkshire. Link members keep in touch with League members in their county, hold coffee mornings and advise re applications to the benevolent fund. For any more information please contact the Membership Secretary.

Our Favourite Books

For the Children

By Michelle Baillie and Lyz Warren, with foreword by Michael Aspel OBE. This book shows the commitment of staff, families, volunteers and supporters, combined with a fierce determination not to let the children down. Tadworth Court not only survived but has gone from strength to strength during the first 25 years.
