There is still time to order your ticket for the Annual Council Meeting.
We have a new venue for this meeting – Sandbach Girls School and there is ample parking at the Cheshire East Council offices next door to the school. NB don’t park at ALDI as they have a seeing eye and you will get a parking ticket of you are there for more than 2 hours.
This year’s Annual Council Meeting is on a Saturday as we have had lots of requests for weekend meetings for members who work during the week.
The afternoon speaker was bodyguard to Nelson Mandela.
Born at a very difficult period in South Africa’s history, Chris made a decision early in his life to become an activist and oppose the racially based system of ‘apartheid’. This decision was to put him on a direct collision course with the ‘apartheid’ regime which resulted in several spells of incarceration, torture and near-death experiences.
After Nelson Mandela’s release in 1990 and the fall of ‘apartheid’, Chris worked with Nelson Mandela until his retirement as a bodyguard and also got involved in the delicate negotiations with the ‘apartheid regime’ resulting in subsequent agreement and the drafting of the new constitution.
With all the current troubles in South Africa this speaker is certainly topical
We look forward to seeing you there
