August 2022


Will AVA Members please note that the trip to Kemble Airfield has been postponed to 7th September, since the Airfield Authorities cannot accommodate our group in August.  Further details will follow when a suitable pub has been arranged for lunch.


Therefore I have arranged a different venue for 3/8/22 at 12 for 12.30 pm. The Ship, Moor Street, Framilode GL2 7LH.  The canal runs alongside the pub and is quite a pleasant place to sit, if the weather is kind. Click here for menu.


I am on holiday at the time the Dockers Club & Pub lunch takes place on 1/6/22 in Sharpness Docks.  I have forwarded the 14 names and menu choices I have for this venue.  If anyone else wishes to attend – or indeed cancel – please contact Sheila Gibson on 01453 731688, or email 

She will collect the money on the day of the lunch as usual.
