The Abbots and Kings Langley branch of the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) has always been a very successful branch with many prestigious awards achieved over the years.
In 2019/20, they won the Area Branch Efficiency Award for the 10th year running and also an award for collecting over £10,000 for the charity.
Holding regular, friendly, monthly social meetings including speakers and entertainers from all walks of life, and a number of outings throughout the year, gives members an interesting and varied entertainment programme.
Abbots and Kings Langley’s branch will be continuing into 2021 with a new core committee, thanks to volunteers coming forward to fill the vacant posts.
A spokesperson for the branch said: “Due to the coronavirus like many other organizations it is unclear when it will be safe to hold further RAFA social meetings as the health of our members is paramount. With the rollout of the vaccine, hopefully it will be sooner rather than later.”
The branch has successfully recruited from its membership a chairman, treasurer and secretary, all from the RAF and wider military family.
While the branch is able to run with the three main positions occupied, they still require volunteers to fill some more supportive, but no less important, roles.
These positions are: branch membership secretary, honorary welfare officer, wings organizer, fundraising manager and an event’s organizer.
If you feel that you would like to be part of a successful team and could fill one of the vacant positions, please contact either the current chairman, Trevor Hayes on 01923 331975 or the current secretary, Bob Sheminant on 01923 263141.
