By Bob Gelder:
It is totally true to say, that the Royal Naval Association (and in particular) Bude Branch has been somewhat restricted over the past several months.
We’ve been in the familiar “Lockdown” and last met up within The Falcon Hotel in September, 2020. But we are still here – and we’ve increased in numbers.
With improved connections with Bideford SCC, and local Associates joining, our latest “recruit” is an ex-Rear Admiral, who also happens to be Vice Pres. of CPRE (Campaign for Preservation of Rural England – Devon Branch). Naturally, as a Branch of R.N.A., we look anxiously forward to our next Branch Meeting – could that be as early as June or July?
