On Friday the 2nd March, a small band of New England
members travelled to Tenterfield, to meet up with members of the
Southern Downs & Granite Belt Brach of the Qld RPA for our annual
combined branch meetings and lunch.
Our meeting was held at the Tenterfield Golf Club
under pleasant skies for the tablelands. Members accompanied by
their wives and partners who attended were, Ian & Linda Ramma,
Laurie Bell and Bruce
Thomas from Tenterfield, Laurie & Marion Smith from Warialda, Monica
O’Mara from Warwick, Peter Trow from Glen Innes and Greg & Maree
Chie, Lee Evans and Monty Ehsman from Inverell.
Apologies were received from George & Robyn
McGilvray, Eric Morgan, Brian Bowman, Geoff Parker, Harry & Ellie
Browne, David Petrie, Ian & Tonia Mason, Barry Hinton, Bill Hooke,
Charlie & Marie Auld, Kaye Ehsman, Bruce Jackson.
Some members of our New England branch maintain
membership in the Southern Down & Granite Belt Branch, due to the
years members worked and were also sworn into the Queensland Police.
The combined meetings is an opportunity to catch up with past
friendships made over the years. At the conclusion of our separate
meetings, all members attended the annual day enjoyed the lunch that
The New England Branch meets quarterly, with the
next branch meeting at the Glen Innes Service Club.
