After much chasing from Bob, we were pleasantly surprised to be contacted by SIZEWELL C who offered to undertake the 2023 proposed talk. We are looking at dates with both them and the availability of the Hind and will confirm the date as soon as possible. We are aiming at late March/early April.
Definitely confirmed is the visit to Amarinth Pumps who are based on the Bentwaters Business Park. Since our visit some years ago, Amarinth have grown the business and now have outlets around the world and bases in the UAE and Malaysia. They have a continued development programme and are now engaging apprentices to secure the future. This will be a fascinating insight to a positive local manufacturer.
At this stage general details of the visit are as follows but will be confirmed closer to the date. So we can get an idea of numbers, as some point I will need confirmation of your attendance. There is no need for action at this moment but I will raise this at the AGM. Please note, There will be no catering arrangements for this visit.

During May, we have arranged another interesting talk about working horses, their links in the early days to Ransome Sims and the move towards tractors. The talk will be given by Chris Spalding of the Suffolk Horse Society. Chris is very interesting character, full of information and fun and is a volunteer for the SHS. His daytime job is a lecturer at Writtle University College in Chelmsford. Final details regarding dates are currently being sorted and details will be forthcoming once confirmed.
So that is all the information for now. Look forward to seeing you all at the AGM.
