Somerset Branch Invitation to our Annual Imjin Commemorative Lunch

Somerset Branch Invitation to our Annual Imjin Commemorative Lunch

Sunday 24th April 20221.   

It has been a long and hard two years since we were last able to organise an Imjin Commemorative Lunch. The dreaded COVID outbreak meant us cancelling the 70th-anniversary event, which was a huge disappointment for everyone. We are now planning the next occasion, which will again be held at Taunton Rugby Football Club, Veritas Park, Hyde Lane, Bathpool, Taunton, Somerset, TA2 8BU on Sunday 24th April 2022 at 1200hrs for 1230hrs.

2.   The two-course carvery & dessert menu, including coffee, is £12.50p per person, which is extremely good value thanks to being generously discounted by the Association. Online payment by bank transfer is the preferred payment option but cheques will also be accepted, full details are attached.

3.   Those who have been before to this venue are familiar with the superb food, the friendly staff, comfortable surroundings, excellent ambience, and of course good company. There are disabled facilities including a lift to the Hyde Suite. There will also be a charity raffle held after the lunch so please bring along a suitable gift.

4.   The venue is easy to find just off J25 M5 and has parking for 250 cars. Directions from the M5 will be printed on your email ticket. Please purchase your tickets in advance from our Secretary Martin Talling, a booking proforma is attached. Further copies are available at the RGBW and Glosters Websites and bookings will close on 31st March 2022. This is a very popular event with a capacity seating limit, so early booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

5.   As previously, we are giving additional focus on tracking down as many Korean Veterans as possible and getting them to this prestigious event. There will be plenty of people attending from Cardiff, Forest of Dean, Gloucester, Bristol, Stroud, Exeter and further afield; so, we ask all association members to try and locate these heroes and get them to the lunch. Their numbers are fewer every year so; let’s make a year to remember for these veterans.
