Autumn Newsletter 2008

Dear Members

Once again, I find myself drafting another autumn newsletter. Where does the time go? The last training day with Kenneth Clawson and Peter Murphy was inspiring and well attended and we have another training day further north on October 30 th at Myerscough with Judy Harvey to look forward to (please contact Sue Pimbley for details etc 01253 701014)

Many congratulations to our new Is and welcome to your free year’s membership to the F & I Association. We all look forward to seeing you at our training days and of course at our Annual Course in January using the superb facilities at Addington.

We wish those intrepid travellers forging their way to the October Fellowship exam all the best of luck. Taking part is great but winning is even better!

We enclose a booking form for our Annual Course at Addington, and we’re delighted to welcome – again – the brilliant Carl Hester and Di Lampard. Remember to book stabling for yourselves and your horses to enable you to stay the night and enjoy our AGM and Annual Dinner. Please book early – why not fill in the form right now and send it off…

Also we are updating our database and keeping better track of who has and hasn’t paid their membership dues. So PLEASE fill in the Membership Renewal Form for 2009 and confirm your membership status to us, and, while you’re at it, why not take a few copies and encourage every other F and I you see to fill one in too? More forms are also available on our excellent and informative website.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the Annual Course, if not before.

Yours sincerely


William Blane FBHS, Chairman, F&I Association
