The  AOHA Annual General Meeting and  Reunion 2020 (update 1 March 2020)

Association of Harrogate Apprentices:

It is my pleasure to report that on behalf of the Association I have spoken to and communicated with The RSM regarding our Final Reunion/AGM weekend in October 2020 at the “Army Foundation College, Uniacke Barracks, Harrogate”.

I can report that we have been granted permission to hold this event, as in past years, at the College on the weekend of Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd October 2020.

I envisage the format to be similar to past events and is likely to be:

Venue:      Army Foundation College, Uniacke Barracks, Penny Pot Lane, Harrogate

Date:         Friday 2nd October 2020

                   1900-2230   Buffet Supper and Reunion 

Location: WO’s & Sgts Mess 

Date:         Saturday 3rd October 2020

                   10:00  Service of Dedication and Remembrance, St Albans Church

                                            followed by refreshment.

                   1100-1145   Annual General Meeting


Location:  WO’s & Sgts Mess 

                   1200-1330   Buffet Lunch

                   1330-1400 Departure                                 


Our President Major General (Ret’d) John Stokoe CB CBE (Intake 63A) has confirmed his intent to attend.

Over the coming months, I will be liaising with Staff from the College to make the arrangements for the weekend and these will be issued when registration has been completed and Vehicle Passes etc issued.

The events will be open to such members as were registered at the 3019 AGM. However, for the purposes of security etc., members wishing to attend MUST register with the Hon Secretary as in the past, giving details of Vehicle; Make; Model; Colour and Registration. We will also need the names of such guests as will be accompanying the member. These will be collated and submitted to the College by Mid-September.

Registration forms will be issued with the Journal as usual in July, and I must ask that they be completed and returned to me promptly, either by mail or email.

Due to issues with after event transport, it has been requested that members travelling by Public Transport or Taxi, ensure that they have made adequate arrangements for their transport after the event. Especially the Friday evening.
