Our last meeting was well attended, and our speaker Ken Hawkins, the previous Mayor of Solihull, proved to be most entertaining with his comments on his 12 Months in Office.
As the youngest Councillor to take the role, Ken advised us of his intention to keep people informed of his progress via all the possible multimedia channels to include facebook and twitter (for those interested in a bit more background information on his year detail can be found on solihullmayor.wordpress.com/)
A response was given to the speaker by John Smith who in his normal fashion passed the thanks of Moseley 41 club, not only for the Ken’s time speaking to us but also to all those groups and individuals who give time to help the community.
We also received a letter of thanks from Roger Wormington’s granddaughter for our support for her marathon run which she completed in less than 5 hours (well done!)
Our Chairman, Tony, kept business to a minimum in view of the speakers presence but did mention a few quick items which I note for your benefit

3) Tony confirmed he is looking to undertake a Ladies night on the evening of Saturday the 1st of March 2014 at the St John’s hotel in Solihull and asked members to give an indication of interest, to allow him to ensure the suite booked was appropriate for the number of people looking to attend. On the night 9 members indicated an intention to attend with 5 others possible. This represented around 38 tickets.
The purpose of this enquiry was purely to get an indication of the level of interest and he was not looking for any formal commitment at this stage. I have in this respect attached a copy of Tony’s tick list and would be obliged if you could indicate your own interest and return the document to Tony as soon as possible on email@example.com
