At the Club's AGM held at Glynde in April 2017, it was proposed and agreed that the Southern Club make a donation to help support the work of the Kent, Surrey. & Sussex Air Ambulance. An amount of £2,500 was also proposed and agreed by those present and, by proxy, by those whom had forwarded their voting authority to the Chairman or Secretary.

The Kent, Surrey, & Sussex Air Ambulance (which is a registered charity) have sent a Certificate of Appreciation to record their thanks. This is attached.

Website Weirdness

Due to a website hosting problem, the web site is showing odd effects - people are getting other members' screens. The solution is either:

  1. If you come here, and see someone else's logged in screen, just hit the 'home' button on the top menu, when your own screen should appear OK.
  2. Set your bookmark to shgc.org.uk/home.php

    Either course will prevent the problem reappearing.
