HomeCalendarCommitteeConstitutionParking at North HarbourLinks/ContactsAGM Minutes for 2013


The IBM Retired Employee Club (South Hants) Branch is available to some categories of retiree. The club promotes and encourages group social activities among retirees and their partners (or guest) and is a great way to pursue the activities that you enjoy, it is also a good way to meet other IBM retirees. The club is run by members who volunteer their time to organise social events.

On behalf of the Committee I would like to wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year and we hope to see you on future trips.
I would also like to thank those who sent Christmas Cards.

Associate Members

Can I please remind Associate members of the club that they need to send their £25 to the treasurer a.s.a.p. to be eligible to go on trips this year.


We have made some adjustments to our Constitution to bring us in line with other IBM Retired Employee clubs. This has been done to enable the IBM UK Clubs Oversight Manager to seek the Trustee's formal approval of the final version so that they can be formally published by the Clubs.

The programme for 2015

We would like to apologise for the delay in publishing the 2015 programme but with many people not returning to work until this week we are still awaiting confirmation on many of the dates. We will try to publish this a.s.a.p.
